    Ok so every few days I get some random new post that pops up in my drafts...

    They are all Untitled_01 Untitled_02 etc...

    And each post has no information except a tag that is like...

    180, 5'11, Male

    or similar tags with just like a weight, height, and male in the tag...

    WTF is going on? Am I hacked? And what is the point of this hack if it is a hack...how could someone benefit from this?

    If I had to guess that looks a lot like malware to me.

    That looks like a hacked site to me. I would install a few security/virus scan plugins and figure it out.

    Contact the hosting company and ask them for help. Once everything is removed, install Ithemes Better Security and learn how to setup it for maximum security.

    download all files from ftp and check all files for some base64 code. If u didnt find any vulnierable code, look in your base. they can add posts directly in mysql by using info from wp-config file.

    yes seems like a hacked site, you can try removing all the plugins and see if it works. Some times these fancy plugins create havoc to Wordpress..

    probably hacked. first of, try to disable all your plugin and change theme (if it's nulled). if still going, then install security plugin or contact the hosting.

    WP is full of vulnerabilites, my question is: Where did you get the themes/plugins? Are they "nulled" ?

    I wonder if my site hacked. I have this black screen on my index with big white text saying "You were hacked" and some random song play in the background.

    WP is safe, but you should be careful with what themes & plugins you are using. It's recommended to use themes/plugins only from trustworth sites like WP org and the popular theme stores like ThemeForest, ...

    +1 And also keep all themes and plugins up to date. You'd be surprised how many users do not keep their software up to date.

    Sounds like you've got a bit of rogue code inside. If you've got any dodgy plugins then it's very likely... same goes for themes... hard without having a look though. Have a look at the source for your themes and plugins and check to see for any encoded / encrypted scripts... typical for php is base64("string").

    I don't mind having a quick look for you though... I love challenges and would be quite interesting to see how they're doing it ha!

    That's what I meant when I said vulnerabilities, Themes and Plugins, not WP itself. It's so easy to insert a small code in a plugin/theme and share it ont he web.
