    Cheers!

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

  2. Who has access to your log-in information and/or email address?

    Did you use the same password for your email account and your blog?

    Are you sharing log-in information with anyone or leaving it where anyone can locate it?

    Are you remaining logged in on your computer so anyone can come along and access your blog through it?

    Go to your email program and change the password to a very difficult one because that's how many hackers gain access to blogs

    Then read this please knowing that blogs don't get hacked when security protocols are followed. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/

    I won't post the I.P address of the unknown hacker writing on my blog but it is only from there the problem started.I replied to his question.I guess he had some code which fetched data when replied.I also had a very strong feeling not to reply to the person but then I thought I shouldn't doubt just because my thoughts is saying so.

  5. Hi there,

    I don't see any suspicious activity on your blog. Can you take a screenshot of the message you got referring to another user logging into your blog? Can you take a screenshot of the comment in question?
