> Hello,The station I run using ice cast keeps being targeted by a hacker.They manage to kill and start our stream at there own will. They have messaged us through a fake Facebook account telling us that they are hacking us and that in order for it to stop we need to give them our Wordpress admin, this was obviously never sent over.
> Any suggestions on how to stop and defend these attacks would be highly appreciated.

weak password on for the icecast admin page?
i.e. at your_server:8000/admin
since they ask for the WP login, it seems that they havn't come 
that far with their hack...
if you want to be sure, re-install the whole box and apply all
bests, u.
