    Ok, I downloaded Heat Theme v4 from somewhere.
    now once in awhile there are new posts in my blog that I didn't post! Is it that the nuller of the script left him/herself a backdoor to post at will?
    I guess I should know better and just buy the theme witch I already did by the way.
    I just want to know if anyone else has seen this happen?

    If you're the administrator you should be able to log-in the front door of the blog and delete the posts. Login to the backdoor and try changing your administrator password. I have never had this happen to me, but it's a good idea to change your password whenever you suspect a hacker.

    That's exactly what I did, I went into admin and deleted the post also changed the pass to a more difficult one,
    few days later the post was back on!
    this time I went into admin and simply edited the link they had put on the post, no body has modified it so far.
