    Hi,

    So today my cpanel account got hacked. First it started with my website redirecting to some clickbait virus site so i started to get worried. After this, i inmediatly started to upload my backup files from two days ago. Considering this just happened today i didn't see a problem uploading my data from a recent date.

    Anyway, halfway through the upload i refresh my cpanel account and apparently i can't login anymore using both admin accounts that are in my possesion.

    I'd really appreciate any help or advice please.

    This is quite urgent.

    Have you contacted your host to let them know your cpanel has been compromised and to get you back in?

    You'll need to contact your Hosting Provider about this.
