    The night before Thanksgiving, I was trying to do my job of promoting the paper when I received a warning from Twitter saying the link was to an "unsafe site', when I Google us it warned that "Warning - visiting this web site may harm your computer! under a malware warning; subsequent to the site url cause a scary red page to appear with a warning. Is this the sign of a hacker? How do we fix it. I am currently deleting all the thousands of c"comments" in the spam cue. Have tried to contact wordpress support personally, to no avail. H-E-L-P!
    our "webmaster" has not been able to fix this in almost TWO WEEKS now.
    Thank you

    check to see if you are using timthumb or any other script like it.. or maybe some unsafe plugins, also check chmod of folders, files, etc.
