    Today afternoon, I tried to sign in my site as usual, but I cant sign in. So I tried many times, reset my pass, finally I was able to sign in. it's quite strange and i think one possibility is my site has been hacked by some hackers.

    i received my friend's message just now telling me his site got stolen by a team of hacker with many accounts stolen too, the hackers even are selling his domain.

    now i can sign in, but i fear i can't sign in again, but when i checked the database, there're quite a lot of data i don't know if they have been moved by hackers or not.

    my questions are: how i can protect my website? it's a wordpress blog, and has a lot of datas, the domain is in godaddy.
    How i can protect my website now? my domain, my server, my account?

    I dont want to lose my website in future. i never thrown so much enegy into one website.

    Please help me, give me any suggestions!

    Revert your site to the nearest backup before the hacking!

    And take a note on these things :

    1. Change all passwords including Cpanel,Wp-Admin and FTPs and SSH.

    2. Disable Anonymous FTP :)

    And You are good to go! :)
