    Give this a read.

    There are some very good plugins in the repository for combating spam effectively.

    Except that you are running an older version of WordPres looking at your site's HTML and scanning it with SiteCheck doesn't appear to have any problems.

    You may be hacked, check if there are any new users that you did not register on your WordPress installation.

    No. Your site is only running version 3.5.1. Five or more security patches were added to 3.5.2.
