    Log in to your phpmyadmin and change the password/email there.

    Change your password in database in wp_users table. You need a hash of some password that you know, you can take it from other WP installation or use online tools to generate the hash.

    Do you've access to cPanel?
    If yes, go to the section PHPMYADMIN.
    Click on the database, then find the table as wp_users.
    In the end, click on that & you'll find all users entry.
    Click the password field of the user you want & type new password.

    In the end, click on save and your done.

    If you've shell access, do let me know.
    I'll create a query and you just fire.

    Login your website control panel. Then click on phpMyAdmin and look at the wp_user table prefix. You can see there is admin user email and password. Edit that option. Use secure password and convert it in MD5. Then save it and login in your site.
    Thanks

    1) First you need to log in to your cPanel account.
    Enter cpanel details. If you don't have one then ask your hosting provider.
    2) Now search for phpmyadmin in the search box.
    3) Click on phpmyadmin.
    4) A list of databases will appear. Click your WordPress database.
    5) All the tables in your database will appear. If not, click Structur
    6) Look for wp_users in the Table column.
    7) Click on the icon for browse.
    8) Locate your Username under user_login
    9) Click edit (may look like a pencil icon in some versions of phpMyAdmin)
    10) Your user_id will be shown, click on Edit
    11) Next to the user_pass is a long list of numbers and letters.
    12) Select and delete these and type in your new password.
    13) Type in the password you want to use. Just type it in normally, but remember, it is case-sensitive.
    14) In this example, the new password will be 'rabbitseatcarrots'
    15) Once you have done that, click the dropdown menu indicated, and select MD5 from the menu.
    16) Check that your password is actually correct, and that MD5 is in the box.
    17) Click the 'Go' button to the bottom right.
    18) Test the new password on the login screen. If it doesn't work, check that you've followed these instructions exactly.

    you can change admin email from phpmyadmin but that wont stop from getting into same issue again.
    what you should do is make backup of your post and images first then clear every files and stuff from your hosting account and reinstall new version of wordpress, And yes dont use nulled plugins / theme again.

    Just restore the back up of your website on your hosting. It looks like one of your plugins has been hacked.
