    I wrote a blog post in May when Osama Bin laden was killed...after a month my blog was hacked by Arabian hackers. When I checked my analytics logs I saw 27 visits from
    Code:
    sa-hacker.com
    . It looks like a vbulletin forum for Arabian hackers and they probably had a thread where they were lisitng URLs which had content against Osama Bin Laden. The whole site is in Arabic so I couldn't figure a thing + the thread was inaccessible without being a member.

    Anyways, I restored the site with a backup and thought that was the end of it. After a week they hacked my site again...and this time they deleted the whole public_html directory..change wordpress login etc. I also deleted some infected files they had put up in my wordpress directory which I found thanks to the WP-Malwatch plugin. This time I researched some more security plugins and activated wordpress firewall and secure wordpesss

    Wordpress Firewall turned out to be a really effective plugin and it alerted me via email when the the hackers tried to hack into the site again, told me about the type of attack (SQL injection) and displayed the IP address, which was indeed from Saudi Arabia. But the best part they were unable to hack it this time. In the next few days I got updates of new attempts to hack but they were unable to hack or deface the site, although they managed to change my wordpress login details (which I changed back from phpmyadmin)

    But since the last week they have worked around the plugin and managed to hack my site...repeatedly..can anyone help me out with this? (I'll give my site's URL in PM) Also, I'd love to get back to them by hacking their site but I have no knowledge of hacking myself

    hacktivists :) Always wanted to gain enough knowledge to be concidered as a hacker cause there is no better way to prevent get hacket than be a hacker.

    my site was hacked by albanians. I restored it, and blocked all the albanian ip range. XD My site was posted on a hacker forum aswell, i blocked the referrer from that site, so they cant access it from that link. Hope it helps.

    If your webserver is apache : edit your .htaccess file, here is an example for blocking a range of IP's starting with 129.0.0 :
    order allow,deny deny from 129.0.0 allow from all
