    Yes. We just cleaned our site because it was hacked and infected. Now that things are getting back to normal, when i am using firefox the box does not move on its own anymore.
    Also, all the titles of the posts are in HTML...?

  4. DON'T CLICK.

    Putting aside any NSFW issue, that site comes up as hacked and wants to run Java.

    Your site is still hacked and it is trying to run Java applications on the visitor's machine.

  7. That's short hand for Your blog is hacked, bad people are doing bad things with it, you need to clean it up.

    Long version? If you visit this

    http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/scanner/

    and put in your blog URL you'll see the problem after it get's scanned.

    I looked at your URL with curl and see the compromised script easily enough. The Sucuri scanner will reveal it to you.

    When I clicked your link to see the rotating banner issue, my Java interpreter fired up. When I viewed your HTML in a terminal session (safe and besides the mouse and GUI are a fad) I can see the script that is doing obfuscated bad things.

    You'll need to delouse your blog.

    Give these a read (links courtesy of Esmi).

    After you've read through that, you want to take a backup of everything and put it somewhere safe.

    Once you've cleaned up and are satisfied, make another fresh backup as well of the clean blog. The backup is your friend and should be respected. It will put you right where you were incase the Really Bad Thing(tm) happens.

    Good luck.

    OK, thanks. Earlier today i got word from the professionals fixing/cleaning the site:
    "It is certain that site does not contains any malicious software now
    as verified by 3 top anti-virus search engines."

    So going from what you all are saying, this is untrue. I apologize to put you at risk, I was under the assumption everything was cleared out.
