My wordpress account was hacked - have you seen this before?

Hello,

Our wordpress account seems to have been hacked. There are now hundreds of pages connected to our url, http://www.scotchanddogs.com.

You can see all the spammy sites when you google search "Site:scotchanddogs.com" - it's insane.

Was wondering if you've ever seen this before or have any advice? Sorry I know your support doesn't cover this thing, just wanted to check if you'd seen this before in your experience.

We also noticed that a bunch of new users had been created in our account (see screenshot).

Hi,
I'm sorry to hear about that but it's beside our permission. Please contact your hosting provider, they may help you in this case.
Next time, you should use a strong password and avoid install external plugins.
Thanks
