    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.

    You can also reset your password via your Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

    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.

    Also, be aware that Staff have records of who did what under which username and login information and when they did it. I flagged this thread with modlook for a Staff follow-up.

    Hi there,

    I had a look at your account and site logs, and I don’t see evidence that any other account has accessed your site. All logged actions were also done from Italian IP addresses, and correspond with the IPs usually used with your account.

    So, if you did not make these changes it was most likely done by someone with access to your computer/mobile phone, or someone who knew your password. The steps @timethief suggested are the best way to prevent something like this happening again, so please follow her advice.
