    I was looking at my list of users, and in ADMINISTRATORS I see
    "Googlebot2".
    What is that?

  2. I'm inclined to think that's a hack, unless you have some plugin related to googlebots.

    Delete the ID.
    Change your passwords (WP AND your ISP password).

    Then review these:

    we are running wordpress 2.5, is it one of the bad versions?

  4. You should upgrade. Definitely. Older versions of WP are always suspect.
