my site had been on page one of Google Identifiedpatient.com , and then started getting thousands of posts (not comments) though comments as well (900) . I could not stop it and worked with many techs at webhostinghub they suggested I talk with you all. They saved my 180 posts in an SQL database ?? and I then cleared and rebuilt a new wordpress CMS. They suggested before I upload my database to talk with youall about the proper plugins to have in place. I have been restoring what I remember. I just don't want to lose my 180 posts under indent324 or 324ident ,tcmd, All the other users can be removed. 1700 posts last count. thank you very much. I am working on getting rid of old sites and outdated plugins to prevent hackers from accessing my sites. Doug

Hello Doug,

Sorry to hear about your spam attack, they can be quite annoying. I am not quite sure what Support was wanting you to discuss with us, other than perhaps our section on WordPress Security. That will help you keep out spam and keep people from forcing attempts to hack your site. Give those suggestions a try and you should be OK to restart your site.

Kindest Regards
Scott M
