my 4mages site hacked within 24 hours
« on: March 23, 2011, 02:48:47 PM »

yesterday evening i downloaded 1.7.9 and installed onto my server (not my personal server, one i paid to use). ive only uploaded a handful of images to see how it works etc and this morning it looks like someone has changed the admin (my) username and email address! ive had to change it back in the sql database but im concerned how this has happened when the site has only been online less than 24 hours. how is this possible, and what can i do to stop it happening again?!
