Akismet Web Forgery (3 posts)

    Good day,

    I received an email from a UK bank saying that one of my sites is offering a phising scam against them. The URL they gave me is :

    http://www.whois.tribulant.net/wp-content/plugins/akismet/.myonlineaccount.abbeynational.co.uk/Login.php

    As you can see... it points to the Akismet plugin inside my wp-content folder. Is there anything I can do to fix this or is it the responsibility of WordPress/Akismet?

    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated so that I can sort out this problem.

    All the best,
    Antonie

  2. Go into the folder and delete thae folder .myonlineaccount.abbeynational.co.uk from wp-content/plugins/akismet/. Also, I'm inclined to say you've been hacked...
