    What are the URLs of these sites?

    Which username account registered each site?

    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:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

    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.

    P.S. 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. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.

    Hi there,

    The username you’re using to post here, mesieblack, has never owned any sites on WordPress.com. No sites have been deleted from this account, as there haven’t been any sites to delete.

    If you can provide the links to the sites you’re missing I can help you figure out how to access them, if they are on WordPress.com. If they are self-hosted sites as @timethief indicated in the other thread, we won’t be able to help you with them, as we don’t have any access to self-hosted WordPress websites.
