    The Bangladesh Cyber Army hacked my site. From what I can tell; all they did was change the posts I created usernames from my name (admin)to their name(BangladeshCyberArmy). But I don't know much about this. Are there other problems I should be looking for?

    Also, I use the username admin. Is there anyway to change this. Wordpress 3.5 says there isn't a way. Does anyone know of a workaround for that.

    Thanks for your consideration of my problem.

    You have a lot more to worry about other than their display name showing up. They probably changed the admin's Nickname to that and changed it so WP will use the Nick instead of username. I'm guessing you had a weak admin password that they brute forced. I would suggest checking for malware on your server first, then change your admin password to something strong, like the one WP generates for you. Then create yourself a new user account with admin privileges for you to login with and use. Also, make sure this new user is set to display a name other than it's username. This will make things more difficult for script kiddies scraping for WP sites and brute forcing their way into your account.

    Man, use cloudflare, it's a simplest way to protect your website from threats like sql injection or even ddos attack!

    According to a WP security plugin, my sites are getting hammered by these script kiddies trying to blast there way in admin. Little sh*ts!

    Protect from ddos yeah maybe but sql injection, no way.. sql injection attack is exploiting flaws in the web application/scripts so as long as your web is accessible, anyone can attempt to hack it.. The only way to prevent it is to make sure the application is sanitized from sql injection bugs. :rain:

    You definitely need to scan your site, man. Good luck cleaning it.

    ya lil bitches got me like that 6 mos ago and I had 3 levels of security and encryption going. they got into the database server and put it to me pretty good. Long story short I backed up DB stripped it down & did a full rebuild on new server with NSA level encryption. No problems now
