    i've just got the plesk login to a new and fresh server with plesk 8.6 for Centos on it,
    and after the first login i discovered a random created client and website

    i've deleted and added my own client
    + i added the first hosting under that client

    just an hour later! i discover again a new web is created, this time under my created client

    the name of the web is giusucms.dgusdn.coim.es.md, no limits are entered, and all the services are checked (apache asp, ssi, php, ...) an ftp user is created and shell access to server is set to /bin/tcsh!

    how can this be accomplished?

    That sounds to me like they have your login credentials. Did you change the admin password?

    well, i'm trying to do that,
    but when i go to Server => Administrator information and click Change password,
    i keep getting the message: Error: Unable to change the administrator's password: old password is incorrect. Please, try again.

    although i enter there the password i use to login to plesk (the username i got from my provider we requested the dedicated server is root)
