Illegal links injected into posts (8 posts)

    I have three sites where every post has had links injected into the body of the post. All links take the format:

    Buy (drug name) online pharmacy no prescription needed

    I assume a bot of some description was used to inject these links. Is there a similar bot or plugin around that I can use to remove them all. I am talking about 2,000 posts all up that have these links - a nightmare to remove manually.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  2. You were hacked. It SOUNDS like the pharma hack...

    Hi Ipstenu - unfortunately the attack on my site hasn''t inserted anything in the headers, the links have been randomly inserted into every post

    check my site - http://myradicalblogs.com - every post has a pharma link inserted

    If it's in the POST itself you have two likely options:

    1) A plugin

    2) Someone has your admin password.

    So ... y'know. Time to change passwords for EVERYTHING and run a scan from http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/ and see if you can pin down WHAT hack you have .

    @Ipstenu With so many hacking going on, it would be nice if there would be a forum specially for the purpose of helping restore WP Web sites after a hack attack. But I'll post than on another topic.

    As for the topic at hand: what @Ipstenu said.

  7. Eeeeeeeeh. There's ALWAYS hacking going on. I'd not want to see a mountain made out of a mole hill. It's really not that much when you compare it to other things. More people have problems when they change the URL of their blog than hackings ;)

    I seem to have the same exact problem with a 3.2.1 install. The above-mentioned scanner didn't show any 'infections'. Neither can I find any special files...

    Did you solve this problem?
    If so would you mind sharing the solution?

    Thanks in advance,
    Peter.
