Last Modified: 2016-02-14
My WordPress site was hacked to the point where the hacker/bot was able to create categories and posts.
Some of the posts created were...

Master Of Papers . Com examination: top service to get college assignments asap & guaranteedly
Papers Monster . Com close-up: trustworthy company to receive papers readily and on time
BUYESSAY.NET overview: prime corporation to get research papers quickly & at the right time

What could have happened here?
Who could have done these and how?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
