Could My Website Have Been Hacked
Recently, I wanted to login to my website http://jointventureseekervideos.com/ through the site manager at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites but discovered that I could not login with the new user/administrator I created immediately I created this site and have been in use ever since.
I could only login with the default admin as administrator
I also realized there were 114 different administrators for my wordpress blog site instead of the expected two users, the default user, the admin-administrator and the 2nd-user-administrator I created.
Since I was not too sure of what was happening, I quickly went through some training at WA to refresh my memory on what to do.
I ended up reading through https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/how-to-create-a-new-user-in-wordpress once again and https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/labman/blog/why-should-you-create-a-new-wordpress-user for the first time.
I deleted all the users/administrators leaving only the original two users.
since I could no longer login with the 2nd user, I just reset its password on the Site Manager. Then login with my 2nd user, and on my wp dashboard used the Quick Edit to change the Admin-User to Admin-Subscriber.
This leaves me with only the 2nd user as the only administrator and I hopefully believe my website is now less prone to attack.
Any comment to enlighten further shall be appreciated
