Security breach-hacking attempt on my site

asked Apr 14, 2012 in Security by Jake (580 points)
I just got an email from my site security plugin about a hack attempt on my wordpress website and failed. The email mentioned that someone tried to login to my site and the targeted username was admin and their IP address has been blocked for 60minutes.
What should I do now?

hi there,

Change your FTP login username password, and then inform your hosting company about this hack attempt

Look for any weird or unfamiliar file in your server.If you find any file that you suspect, delete them immediately.
Make sure your version of Wordpress is up to date.
