Thanks for the note. As those in Chat know, my wordpress site was hacked into on June 29th. A very unhappy day.

I went through the link you provided, but did not find in the list anything that I used, but they still got in. The one thing that saved me was that I did a backup of the website not long ago.

So, backup often. Use a different user account to post than what you use as an Admin. Use strong passwords. There are also a number of good free Wordpress plugins to use to enhance security. Delete any unused themes and plugins as suggested. Keep your Wordpress and themes and plugins up-to-date with the latest versions.

I hope no one has to do what I did to get their website clean again.
