    Blog got hacked

    One of my wordpress blogs got hacked and my site is redirecting to a different site.... When I check the phpmyadmin, there is another sql server that I am not familiar with... and there are around 17 table... I cannot delete the tables... I already contacted my host and still waiting for response...

    The installed database is "information_schema (17)"

    Are you familiar with this?

    Thanks

    Wordpress has this major hack issue so always make sure you host your site with modsec and suphp installed on it.

    Also alway update your wordpress to latest stable version or you will continuously face such problems with wordpress.

    There is a tool too that you can use to prevent people from hacking you blog. Most times they hack the header file and control it that way.

    Check your CHMOD permissions which should be back to earlier permission once you changed to 777. Do you've the backup of your blog?
