    Hey, I received the “follow this link” email that you would get if you clicked on “lost my password”, but didn’t respond to it, as I never requested it. No harm there, so I didn’t worry about it.

    But then I received the “your new password is …” email, with a jumbled password that was automatically generated (I’m assuming). When I tried to log in with my old password, it didn’t work – I had to use this new one.

    So how did someone get to change my password?!?!?

    Not cool.

    And how do I figure out if they’ve done anything to my blog, other than reading through from beginning to end?!?

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

    Change the password immediately to something different and make sure that it is not something that is easily guessed (include upper and lower case, and some numbers). Also, contact staff directly about it and give them the details.
