Authentication Required - Why? (8 posts)

    When I tried to "Save Draft" today I got a pop up that said "Authentication Required" A username and password are being requested by http://performancetrends.com. The site says: "Magic"

    I entered my user name and password but it didn't work. (I immediately changed my password after it didn't work). I'm still getting this pop up, has anyone seen this, has my blog been hacked?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Dennis

  2. Oookay, that's the second site I've seen today with that.

    Check http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_My_site_was_hacked

    What plugins have you?

    Hi, I'm getting the exact same error message from a server called "Magic" when I try to save any changes to my pages. My active plugins are MM Forms, WP-ads, WP-polls, FAlbum, and WP List Files.

    The FAQ page is really not that helpful with this hack.
