Fixed my blog

So apparently I got hacked somehow. Not sure what happened, but someone found a way in to my WordPress installation and started using it to serve spammy ad links.  I’ve rooted out the problem and installed a WP security plugin that will watch for and work to prevent future attacks, so hopefully this won’t happen again.

As a minor note, anyone who’s left comments on here, someone might know your email address now.  Aside from that, this shouldn’t cause any problems for my readers.

    On a completely unrelated note, my income from spammy ad links has suddenly dropped to zero. 🙁

    which plugin did you install ?

    Had the same problem with WordPress, was hacked twice despite loading security plugins.

    Eventually switched to Joomla, and its just as good
