Project Description

I have a WP site whose mailboxes have been hacked..

Below is part of what the hosting has sent to me:

"It has been brought to our attention that the above e-mail account has been used to send unsolicited mail. Example headers are included at the base of this notification

We understand that you may not be aware of this activity. The general cause is usually either down to the Mailbox password not being strong enough or alternatively, the local pc or network may be compromised with malicious software.

You may have noticed a large number of bounce backs message delivered to your mailbox over the past few days or weeks. This is because large amount of spam is being send from your mailbox either to e-mail addresses which do not exist or the recipients mail server has returned it due to being flagged as spam.

Under the circumstances presented, we would therefore strongly recommend that you perform the appropriate Anti-Virus/Malware scans aswell as accessing your Fasthosts control panel to make all mailbox passwords are as secure as they can be.

In the interim, we have taken action to change the password on the e-mail address in question to prevent the activity from continuing . We are sorry to have to take these measures, but such activities could cause us to be blacklisted by ISPs which is a risk we cannot take.

Should we receive further reports of this activity from other mailboxes on your domain then we may need to suspend to all mailboxes."

I need someone to run appropriate anti/virus etc and get the mailboxes unsuspended.
