    Hi,

    Running wordpress version 2.5.1. In the past 24 hours my website has been hacked and someone has inserted advertising at the header and sidebar. I do not know where to begin to check how and where the malicious code is.

    Please take a look (www.mymindwanders.com) - the problem is obvious.

    I'd suggest talking to Godaddy--that looks like your domain might be one they term "Free with Hosting" and they (Godaddy) will place ads on your site.

    Hmm, nope I don't have my hosting at Godaddy. I have the name registered at SiteGround and I host on a VPS at 1&1.com.

    Nevermind... it was a sponsor who had me insert code into my sidebar. The PHP code inserted a number of <div>'s which laid on top of the page. I removed that code and no more problem.

    Thanks for your help, though, MichaelH!

    I swear I saw a 'Parked at Godaddy' header earlier--oh well thanks for marking resolved.
