    Hi Sarah, I suggest you change the username of the hacker right away as they again got access to my account and I had to reset the password via cPanel.

    I just changed the username via the PhpMyAdmin, you can find the steps here for host gator – http://support.hostgator.com/articl...s/how-to-change-your-wordpress-login-username

    The steps are pretty simple and should be similar for other hosting companies.

    Now my problem is that the hack created a lot of fake URL’s and if I do a site search in google by typing “site:www.mydomain.com” I see a lot of gibberish Japanese text. It shows that there are 200,000 results when I only have 600 actual posts in my website =/

    I installed wordfence and cleaned up my sitemaps the first time I got hacked since I noticed these were not proper but these Japanese texts still show up when I do the google search. Anyone here know how to fix this?
