    1.2.2 has a known vulnerability.

    a. Change ALL your site passwords.
    b. Get a database backup now.
    c. Download your site files now.
    Then clear all the wordpress files

    You are going to need to upgrade to 1.5.2

    Database backup guide:

    As soon as you restore the database (guide for that ath the above site) you must delete any other users and then change your login and password too.

    Do at least a,b and c then post back with any questions.
