a hacker put value "admin" into all user_login fields. i need to copy user_nicename value into the user_login so users can login. is there a SQL command i can run to do this task in bulk, as their 1000s of users and doing manually would a hassle. kindly help if you can. thanks !


Run the following SQL query in PHPMyAdmin or similar.

UPDATE wp_users SET user_login = user_nicename;

wp_users is the table for users (make sure it matches yours)
