Site Hacked? Please help (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I run the site http://www.sportsnob.net Over the past week I have seen some strange behaviour on the site.

    At times when I login, I see the following

    1. All my content is there, but some of the sidebar text has changed, for example I don't see the site introduction and some more text box widgets.

    2. (this is the worst bit) if I login as an admin, I don't seem to have ANY rights or privileges

    3. And, just below the META widget, I see one word called TEST. This always is there.

    This is the third time this is happening and each time the above three take place. After couple of hours everything goes back to normal.

    Each time I have reset all the passwords and asked a friend to go through all the code. He cant find anything wrong with it.

    Could it be a problem with my host- Globat? or is it some sort of problem with one of the plugins.

    Could somebody please tell me what I should do next? Please help!

    Just spent 10 minutes moving around your site, cleaned my cache several times, tried different browsers and apart from a bit of slow loading at times, it all works. The contributors page seems to go nowhere though.

    I do not see the problems you have mentioned above although I cannot comment on the admin panel issue. I can access your login page.

    I see you are using 2.0.1 so it may be an idea to update whenever you get the chance.

    Shadow, thanks a ton. Now the site is back to normal. This is so weird. What I am going to do is send two screen shots, the next time this happens.

    Hi shadow (and others)

    the problem seems to be back. Same problems as the first post and I don't have ANY admin rights. And the word TEST has appeared on the left bad (in the META widget). Otherwise, in the right side bar- the Technorati Widget isn't there on our site but has appeared out of the blue.

    Will post the image here. But any guidelines?!
