    Please see the bottom of this page - http://www.dontwasteyourtime.co.uk/page/2/?s=assessment

    I have been hacked?

    There are loads and loads of links to things that are not mine, and nothing to do with me (nor do I want to be associated with them), but can't see how or where this is coming from.

    Any ideas please?

    It is only on pages when the search is used, and not the first page returned either.

    More examples:

    http://www.dontwasteyourtime.co.uk/?s=twitter - no

    Just before the links is the code <!-- WST !-->, which, when searching the whole of the WordPress files is not found ... so where is this coming from?

    Hmm ... still nothing from the theme author !!!

    I've updated to the latest version, and the links disappeared for a day.

    Not they're back!! Here they are: http://tweetphoto.com/qc4qavxh

    Anyone able to help please, this is not acceptable to have these links in the blog (I'm sure you'd agree).

    Please?

    All attempted to contact the theme creator have failed, on several occasions.

    Any suggestions (other than change theme)??

    I don't get it, there are thousands of wordpress blogs infected with this kinda viruses and you blame the theme developer?
    Nice.
