    Although this is a PRE-SALE forum, seems you are in urgent, I think the best way is to call your host, if they don't have a phone number you can start an urgent ticket.

    EDIT: Or do you know that guy's IP address? Do you have cPanel? Login to your cPanel, and use a tool on the front page to deny that guy's IP address out from your server. This won't help for long time however may give you more time to reach your host.

    Best luck!

        Do you have the phone number of your host provider? If yes, call them now to ask for help.

          Calm down. Backup your files and db, contact your host to do a daily restore of your site and change all your password ftp and vb admincp.
