    Your plugin serves b.scorecardresearch.com. What a jerk!! Do NOT use this plugin!

  2. Where in that plugin? And are you sure that your site is not hacked?

    That plugin is well respected and I'd be disappointed if they did something like that.

    I've gone through every file in that zip archive and I can't find any string match for "score" in any file (using find and grep). That doesn't mean it's not happening, but if you could help identify where that would help a lot.

    Unfortunately I could not find it either but it IS happening. I noticed the redirect while trying to access another plugin. And that plugin did not work at all. So I did the procedure of disabling plugins one at a time and when I disabled WPTouch - all was well. No redirect. Logic tells me it was WPTouch causing the problem and I read a lot about b.scorecardresearch through a google search and found it is served by many plugins. I hate it because this plugin made my mobile site look really good but I won't use it now.

    Already talked to my hosting company and my site is NOT hacked. I had already pretty much determined that before I called them but this site is huge and I can't afford to have anything happen to it! Hence the call to hosting company

  4. Unfortunately I could not find it either but it IS happening.

    Agreed.

    Yes, but that just confirms that the redirect is happening and that your copy of WPTouch may be involved.

    If we had a nickel for every host that says that... ;)

    Can you share your site link? Easier to look at to than guess. If you can't or don't want to share the link, that's fine too.

    Understand your nickel statement! But I had already checked and didn't find anything - just wanted backup.

    I prefer not to share the link on a public forum. Besides wptouch is now gone from the site and I have been testing exhaustively for the last hour - not finished yet!

    You mentioned that my 'copy' of WPTouch might be involved. Well - I got that copy directly from the WordPress plugin repository and installed it directly in my WordPress install from Plugins -> Install New. So what's in your repository now just might be the same as my 'copy'.

    Jan - so love this plugin that I did as you suggested - got another copy and all seems well. Don't know how or why that happened but am happy that I can now use it. Thank you for your suggestion.

    Hi mlogos,

    WPtouch will never load anything like that on any website. Glad to hear you got the issue resolved. Thanks Jan!

    Also verifying that WPTouch isn't the culprit.

    Any plugin that uses ShareThis loads it. They also mention it here. https://support.sharethis.com/customer/portal/questions/736931-sharethis-and-scorecardresearch-com

    I also checked myself.
