    I've checked every file in my theme and I didn't see the codes where injected or any changes where made to the file.

    I already delete the default admin after i install the wordpress and created a new admin.

    Make sure you do not have the username as admin.
    Also i always suggest one you have for posting your threads and another just for admin purposes. That way if you get hacked they can only make posts and do not have access to everything. If you need to change username there is a mod that does that. Also make sure your site does not have admin under your name.

    This is what I meant. Use the original admin account, then create a second account with a different name as admin and delete the original admin account.

    WP is easier to hack if the admin account is named... admin!

    The main reason for what a WordPress website got hack is if you are having a virus in you computer that stealing your information or your easy wp-admin password..!

    I did what you guys said and installed couple security plugins. Also, the username is not admin. Right now I haven't see those small texts yet on the sidebar. I think there's a file called general template was modified and I uploaded the original one again.

    My account got recently hacked too you have to take precautions. For me those precautions damaged my WP installation, which super sucks! I suppose who should never completely trust plug-ins and only install those with 4-5 star rating. Can you let us know which security plug-ins you installed on your account.
