blog used as constant doorway for spam (6 posts)

    Every coupe of weeks my the websites on my web server are infected with spam being inserted into the html pages. i am fairly certain this is being done through the blogs provided by wordpress. The blogs themselves are hosted on the web server, not wordpress. Could that be an issue?
    Could another issue be the themes i am using? They are user created, and I find them when searching for themes. If they are not up to date or just old, is that enough of an opening for hackers/spam to start?
    What other advice can you give me about this problem?
    Thank you.

    Thank you for the links, but since this has been a continuous problem, what would be the favorite as to what the cause would most likely be?

    Perhaps you are not cleaning out all of the hacker's back doors?

    That must be the problem.
    I cleaned every site on the domain, and now less than 24 hours later, all the spam is back.

    What should I be doing to stop this quick turnaround?
