WordPress fix Hacked

    Hacked, by ianmantgani

    Hi folks – I believe my website has been hacked.

    My login no longer works. The username / email / password aren’t recognised. I also see from Googling the site that at some point somebody tried to replace one of the pages with a page of Japanese text.

    I don’t understand how this happened as my site auto-updated to the new wordpress.

    I found a long hash of something or other in my index.php file and deleted it.

    But I still can’t log in with my username, nor do I know how to identify the hack. I could do a clean WordPress install and back up with my database files, but how do I know my database files haven’t been hacked.

    Please do help if you can. Struggling here and the advice pages on hacks aren’t making things clearer for me.
