  1. Hi, from : http://star0333.wordpress.com/
    I my account was hacked and my blog's URL name has been changed to star0333, please help me as I want to change it back to the original name (starseed333), but it's not letting me.

    When I try to change the URL to starseed333, it says that the name is taken, but it's actually available.
    Could you please help me?

    Thanks,

    The blog I need help with is star0333.wordpress.com.

  2. starseed333.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    That's not possible. You cannot recover or register any deleted blog URL. Deleted blog URLs are not recycled, regardless of who registered and deleted them and no exceptions are made.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/recycling-blog-names/

    To prevent accidental or inadvertent deletion of blogs, there are multiple warnings given that blog deletion is permanent and irreversible. Lastly, a verification link is sent in an email and it must be clicked to delete a blog. If clicking that link does not work then copy and paste it into your upper browser window and click. Once the verification link for deletion is clicked the blog URL is forever gone, gone, gone.

  3. Note the name of the blog at http://star0333.wordpress.com/ is
    StarSeed333 and the Tagline is: To attain Spiritual Growth through the obstacles of my Physical Existence.

  4. The only “hacked” sites I have seen here have been people getting the password somehow to a site so you do want to be careful how you log in and use a tough password.

    You should also check to make sure that someone has not added a new user to your site. Problems have also happened when there was more than one Admin. and an Admin left on less than graceful terms.

    Dashboard >> Users

    Many times a users email is hacked or the password guessed and the email account is used to get access by requesting a password reset – you need to change your email password and make sure they nobody has been added to your email account.

    You should also run a virus check on you PC to make sure your PC does not have a security issue that has compromised your email or WordPress.COM log-in information (also your bank etc. if you do online banking or retirement accounts)

    There have also been a few Posts on “hacked” sites and it was because someone got the Post by Email address and using the Post by Email to send in new Posts, if you have Post by email disable the Post by Email and regenerate the address. Spammers have scripts the generate email addresses and they sometimes can get a valid address for a Post by Email address.

    If you are really concerned you could as the staff to look at your site: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    You could also use a secure log-in in case you are on an unsecured link: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

  5. If you really think your blog has been hacked then proceed as follows.

    Go to your email program and change the password to a very difficult one because that's how many hackers gain access to blogs
    Read > http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/

    1. If you can log-in 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
    You can also reset your password via your Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/settings/

    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. Set up two step authentication http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/two-step-authentication/

    P.S. I flagged this thread for Staff help. Please confirm the URL of the blog you are referring to if you have not already done so.
