    I was just looking in one of my sites databases and find there is another admin next to me, with this email [email protected]

    Anyone else got their database hijacked like this? I am suspecting its from some of the plugins.

    And then again i probably have to check if he inserted hes links somewhere on my wordpress as well.

    Any thoughts, experiences on this?

    It's the UAW plugin. I'm using it on a few article directories and that email is registered in all of them.

    This is fairly common no? A lot of so called "free" plugins, wordpress themes, joomla themes etc, come with these sorts of things to create backlinks & advertising for their authors.. IMHO it's not that bad & not too much to ask if the software you are getting is otherwise free? Lots of free wordpress themes have little ads for their authors in the footer for example. Not too hard to get rid of these things anyway. I guess the only think the author should do is make users aware that they exist which sounds like in this case, the guy didn't..

    There is a huge difference between adding a link to your site in the footer and inserting yourself into the database as a user with admin rights.

    I had something injected in my database about a year ago, kept redirecting my traffic to chinese websites - Easy to sort though

    I had this fuck too. I just deleted him. I guess restricting access to /wp-admin/ folder by ip won't help if it's a plugin issue.

    Well it may not stop him from inserting a user into the database but I would think it would stop him from actually being able to login as an admin.

    Is everyone finding him in their database usiing UAW?
