    Hi guys,

    I have a wordpress site that I havent really done anything with for the last 6 months but in the last couple of months it has started to make a few $ a day with adsense so I decided to start working on it again this week. When I logged into the backend of it I opened one of my posts to add something and saw that there were 3 random links with anchor text pointing to other websites. After deleting them I thought it would be best to check some of my other posts and it turns out that all 75 of them now have links pointing to other peoples websites. I have since changed my password but what I wanted to know is if someone has physically found out my password somehow and gone in and done all this manually or is there software floating around that does this, and is there anything I can do to stop it happening again?

    Thanks in advance,

    Boomstix.

    You were hacked. This happened to me once years ago... I suggest you install some security plugins.
