    The strangest thing is occurring with my blog. When I go to Google and search for one of my keywords and click through to my blog I'm redirected to another site. However if I just enter my blogs URL address in my browser I am taken to my blog. I can't seam to figure out what's going on here. I have the latest version of WordPress installed 2.5.1. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You have probably been hacked. Check your site's .htaccess file(s) for any referrer-based redirects.

    I was hacked by the same way (the visitors go to your-needs.info). Strafe, update to the more newest version of WordPress, that is the more secure cure.

    But if you like to find a cure by yourself, go to your phpmyadmin if you have, and go to wp_options and find the table of the active_plugins and find anything in like an image running as plugin.

    If you can't find anything, try to find into the extensive list of WordPress files for a suspictious code or image with the names "_old.gif" or another.

    You can find more information about the attack in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/179395?replies=2#post-770581

    strafe already said this:

    I have the latest version of WordPress installed 2.5.1.

    you both are exactly why I didnt answer -- its not safe to assume something withiut more information.

    Then try to do the tips that I describe into this thread, because maybe you update the blog when you're already hacked and this not resolve the attack.

    Read the last post that I've published: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/179395 and try to get to this place to Matt or another WordPress developer in order to alert them, because a bunch of websites are attacked.
