[resolved] Spam through Recommendations Bar? (5 posts)

    I've just noticed a very strange thing in my recommendations bar - pharmaceutical spam!
    The feature image and link was correct, but the title is baffling. I've just checked through all comments, pages, and posts, and the open graph settings, and can find nothing with this text, and there certainly shouldn't be any showing up in the Facebook recommendations bar!
    Can anyone shed some light on how/why this happened?

    Ah, screenshot has been filtered out.
    I included it to prove I'm not trying to troll.
    Not sure if this will work, but screenshot try #2:

    This seems like an issue with Recommendations Bar content served by Facebook, not an issue with the WordPress plugin.

    You can file an issue on Facebook with more information about your specific case and observed content.

    Thanks Niall. It hasn't appeared since, so not quite sure how to complete a bug report.

    Just an update - this was caused by a Pharma Hack, not anything to do with the Facebook plugin.
