Strange entries in wp_options table (2 posts)

    Anyone encountered this strange problem? I exported my MySQL database. In de wp_options file I found a LOT of data and references to pictures that were not mine. For example the sentence:
    "easy, but I agree it would be nice if the video media embed popup made this more seamless"
    I Googled this sentence and found this WordPress blog:
    http://www.baldheretic.com/2009/02/18/implementing-video

    Another example, this picture: http://ocaoimh.ie/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/jobless_cover-213x300.jpg
    It's in my database but definitely not on my blog.

    Or this one: http://lorelle.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/edmoirta-tattooartistwordpresslogo.jpg

    I have hundreds of examples like this. And I am sure that I did not import this into my table? Anyone has an explanation? Or am I missing something?

    Very curious if anyone has an explanation.

    Thanks!

    The options table keeps a lot of crap in it for those RSS feeds on the dashboard. Probably something to do with that?
