    Someone hacked my account tonight and deleted most of my blogs, does wordpress have any sort of back up dating back to earlier today? I tried to restore what I could but the last saved item was from 8/11 when I post multiple times a day! PLEASE HELP!

  2. Provided you can log-in:
    1. Go here > Users > All Users and delete any user that does not belong there.
    2. Disable post by email > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-email/
    3. Disable post by voice > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-voice/
    4. Change your blog password to a very difficult one > http://en.support.wordpress.com/passwords/#change-your-password
    5. Use a secure, encrypted connection to connect to your Dashboard. Under Users → Personal Settings, check the box that says “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages, and click Save Changes.
    6. Go to your email program and change the password to a very difficult one

  4. Hi there,

    I've looked over the blogs on your account, and it doesn't look like there is any suspicious access that has taken place. Can you please provide the URL(s) of the blogs where you've experienced data loss?

    Best,
    P.
