re: hacked accounts and blogs
If anyone is posting anything to your blog or removing anything from it, or changing anything in it, or if your blog has been deleted and you did not delete it, then it’s most likely that you have provided them with the ability to do so, either deliberately by adding them as official users, or by allowing them access to your login information, or by posting content that makes it easy for them to guess what your log-in information is.
For you, the question that needs to be answered is: Who, aside from me, has access to my login information?
Go to your email program immediately and change the password to a very difficult one because that’s how many hackers gain access to blogs.
Change your blog password to a very difficult one > http://en.support.wordpress.com/passwords/#change-your-password
You can also reset your password via your Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page:
Disable post by email https://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/email-post-changes/
Use a secure, encrypted connection to connect to your Dashboard. Under Users → Personal Settings, check the box that says “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages, and click Save Changes.
Use two step authentication http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/two-step-authentication/
Run a security scan on your computer. See here to run a security scan http://geekflare.com/online-scan-website-security-vulnerabilities/
Never leave your computer logged into your blog and walk away from it. Always log out properly.
I’ve replied to you via the email address you used to create this account. Please reply there for help with this, as it’s better to deal with this issue privately rather than the public forums where we can’t discuss email addresses and login details. Thanks.
