    We had some B/H attacks before, two in total now. But I was going through WMT external links and it say's that the index page has 17,000+ outgoing links...

    Shady.. as there all to p0rno sites? How was this done? Any way to solve this?

    Let me guess... Your site is a WP blog? And you're not running the latest and greatest update? And your footer says "Proudly provided by WordPress v2.1" (or whatever version)?

    If yes, you're like standing in the middle of the street and saying here, kick me in the ass :)

    Steps to secure your install:

    * UPGRADE to the latest WP!
    * When it says to upgrade in your control panel, DO IT!
    * Did I mention upgrading? :)
    * Edit the footer and remove the version fingerprint.

    We do run WP on the site but in /blog/. The results are showing on the actual index page, a PHP file for our store/design.

    I see you're not very clue-full :) Once they break into your machine, they can modify *ANY* file, not just those generated by WP.
