My Site got Hacked!

The other day I noticed that my site took a long time to load, after which, it kept giving me a Network Protocol error message. After 2 hours, I checked it again and I saw the “Apache is working on your cPanel and WHM Server” homepage was plastered on my site. I tried to refresh the page and this was what I found next….

It seemed like a photo album of babies and I didn’t dare click on the album for it may contain viruses. Anyway, I tried to contact my hosting service chat support and this was the transcript:

Fine! The agent was in a hurry to close the chat. Worse is the 1 hour she promised stretched to more than 12 hours! 1 entry wasn’t recovered and certain comments on previous posts got deleted too.  I can’t install updates for my existing Plugins since it prompting me to enter a hostname, username and password. I don’t have any clue what to enter! *sigh* Why me??? Well, I should be thankful that I didn’t lose all my data right?

I wish I was able to take those Online Degree Programs about web servers and everything that dealt with creating and maintaining a site. To think that the company paid for the lessons that I never got to take advantage of.

So much for security!
