Has anyone else seen this same thing on their Wordpress blogs?
If i had to guess,I would say your running a vulnerable version of wordpress or whoever is doing this has a 0-day exploit for wordpress or whatever plugin your using.Make sure everything is updated.
Yes I have everything updated on my Wordpress site.
Are you using this plugin on your blog?
I'm not using this plugin since all you need to get the same functionality is just couple of lines on the sidebar. Have a look here http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
I'll let you know if my site also got this hack.
I figured it out.
It was the developer I think that is doing this.
There was an update for this plugin yesterday I think so I updated it.
Never noticed the link on my site till today though.
I just finished going through this plugins code for the third time,
looking a little closer at everything this time around, and seen
that it is the plugin itself adding this backlink to all the websites
that are using it.
So if you are using this plugin:
I would go through the plugins code and remove the backlink that
they are putting on your site.
Sorry about the false hack alarm I made.
Just a head up for the user and every other who downloads crack plugins or themes to check them with windows grep to find any unusual url embedded in the code.
