    my wp 2.6.1 blog just got hacked, and not sure what was done or how to get rid of it.

    found out by referral in my stats program, this page here which i didn't create.

    http://adultaddstrengths.com.sponsorsforblogs.com/

    they basically say This is special offer for adultaddstrengths.com owner, Find sponsors for your blog, and ask you to fill out an email form.

    I saw on one other post that possibly the wordpress automatic upgrade plugin might be insecure so i deleted it but the post is still there and I don't know how they got in, what they added or how to delete/disinfect my blog.

    I saw the same hack on another site listed on this thread here,

    http://groups.google.com/group/blogger-help-howdoi/browse_thread/thread/bfd39577f4162a5f/ee4ee1d8f117f588?lnk=raot

    but unfortunately no answer. when i clicked through that persons email signup with a fake email address I got this page

    "Thanks for signing. We sent confirmation link to your email, please check your inbox.

    We will contact with you shortly when our sponsorship network will start. If you have any question, feel free & send me an email to kamil.przeorski@gmail.com"

    If the guy who did it was kamil.przeorski@gmail.com and I'm not sure that it is, this is his site
    http://przeor.com/ and his wordpress blog http://przeor.com/blog/

    any suggestions?

    I'm not clear what the "hack" actually is.

    What has happened to your website?

    Is it just an incoming link? If it is, you should just ignore it, there's not a lot you can do about that.

    Some statistic collectors / counters actually add spam pop-ups.

    d'oh.

    i unfortunately forget to notice there wasn't a / after my blog name and before sponsorsforblog.com

    this person just created a subdomain on his site with my sitename in front of it, and had 23 people with different OS's and from different countries show up for that link on my stats package to try and pimp his services to me.

    sorry about that.
