Disgusting day .
my site: www.windowslatest.com was hacked. Then 200+ posts with title “HEREISPOSTTITLE” were published on the site. The article had no author, it was blank. It was posting articles continuously but I later revoked all authors/editors access and made them contributor. I also emailed my host support team, their CEO, COO. They paid attention and tried to fix the problem.
Now articles are not getting posted automatically. Site went down 5-10 times in 300 minutes and within 30 minutes, 200+ posts were published. It could have been 1000+ in an hour…
Right now all authors are contributor. Everything seems fine. I asked all my authors to change password and decided to make the authors contributor who are not active. Anything else I should do?
