2 Days ago, TechieDan.com was hacked due to one of the websites hosted on the same server with higher priority granted access to the hacker. The hacker even changed the username and password on one of the WordPress blog and then by doing so he gained access to some of the server’s ability.
Granted that, here was the screen capture of what happened during the past few days when TechieDan was on a hiatus.
One good thing about WordPress is if you are still able to login to WordPress using your username and password, just reinstall wordpress and it should be good as new. Of course, if that does not work just reinstall the theme.
That is why it is always important to backup your WordPress data so in the case of emergency cases like these.
Also, a recent attack again. This time the culprit was found. It was one of the blogs which does not have a secure password and user name. For those sites, TechieDan have fixed the issue and have informed the owner of the blog that their password has been changed. Blog owners out there, to protect the safety of your blogs, do remember to choose a proper user name that only you know and also a secure password. Not something as simple like ‘admin’ or ‘123456’
Here is the new attack photo.
