I'm just going to add a few things here.

First of all, if you want to secure your WordPress installs, I'd recommend taking a look at this:? There are more things you can do, but this is a good start. Google for other ways to secure your install.

Second, I'm not entirely sure how you are setting up your blogs, but I would strongly recommend against doing the "1-click install" of WordPress or however it is branded through GoDaddy and other hosting providers. Download the code from, upload and configure yourself. Then do all of the security steps.

Also, back up your data using one of the MANY DB backup plugins/tools available. For example:?

Doing this will protect you from most attacks, and if you are still attacked, you at least have backups so that you will be saved.

Joshua, Let's just agree that we disagree and drop this, we are both right OK?

Let's not waste more time on this than we have.

And NO, since I feed my kids and keep a roof over their heads with what I make online, no I can't really afford to waste money or more time on this. I simply requested that maybe GoDadday could take a moment to reassure us hosting there is now a little more secure.
