    HI all,

    When I try to login to my WP site as an admin, Someone may be hacker change Admin password. I couldn't login. Then I reset the password again and I've logged again. And also I noticed and received email and says "Password Lost and Changed for user:Admin name" . Thats how I notice he knows my admin user name.
    I need to know how someone guess my admin name. I already changed the admin name also. Is there anyway to prevent this?
    How can I know the IP of that hacker?
    Is there any plugin to get IP of the all logged users?

    Really appreciated any help.

    The main thing that matters, Have you fixed it up ? I mean, you have your admin access back from the hacker?

    Well do this, Limit your wp-admin for just your ip, or an ip range (If you have a dynamic IP)

    Check your log files. It will show you where they came in from and at what time. Do a net block just to be safe until you secure your site.

    Need any further help let us know.

    Damn that guy sounds like a serious asshole. I understand blackhat, but that's just not even a fair way to get backlinks.
