hacking problem. Because I have already fall in problem to hack my site!!!
Please suggest me what should i do???
The first step and the most important step is to keep backup. Before you plan on making any changes, make sure you backup your entire DB. You can do this manually or use an available plugin. I recommend backup buddy which backs up your entire wordpress blog. Unlike free plugins which only backup your database, backup buddy exports your entire database with images, files and whatever you have in your blog’s content folder- Pretty sweeet!

and don't forget to update your blog regulary as soon as you see the update notice in your admin area. and keep your passwords hard to guess and safe. also install captcha module for admin login too.

Download plugins from trusted sites, original, and keep backup.
Definitely agree with most advice here - especially:
Keep a backup - backup buddy is good, but total backup is good too.
Update WP as soon as possible after a new release
Consider malware scanning plug ins. Most can detect problems as they are happening, and some can clean them up too.
The default wordpress login is admin and most hackers know that.
We should change this to something else that would be difficult to guess.
I suggest that you use strong passwords which include upper/lower keys, numbers and symbols.

Like Steven here said, many hackers use what is known as a bruteforce technique to hack sites that keep the admin username as "admin". For security reasons, the best thing to do is start with changing that username.

Last but not least, install a Wordpress plugin that limits the amount of login attempts per user IP per certain amount of time. This will greatly reduce your exposure.
The thing i do on my every blog is i install this plugin: Better WP Security. After that i also do most of the thing thats this plugin tells me to do - like change login path from /wp-login.php to /login (or whatever you feel is best for you). Of course that is not all, i also set up bad logins attempts to max 2. I never do mistakes while login on my own sites so thats what tells me that someone is trying to hack my login/password. Of course you have to change your admin name. DONT EVER MAKE "ADMIN" account on your blog/forum/website or whatever. Its easiest way to hack your account and do alot of troubles.
My advices are to :
-update your WordPress
-install WP Security Scan and Secure WordPress
-delete account “admin”
