[resolved] Strange Search Strings (10 posts)

    I've noticed recently that my site is visited by people using search strings including drugs without prescription references.

    If I visit the cached google result my 'blog' is littered with these references but the real page isn't.

    I've looked at obvious files to see if I've been hacked but I can't see anything out of the ordinary.

    Is anyone else getting this?

    If you leave a link to your site, perhaps some adventurous soul - unafraid of wandering into the wasteland of pharma-hacks and fake antivirus drive-by's - will take a peek and see if they can spot the problem for you. :-)

    Does anyone know anything about my query above?

    Thanks Ipstenu, but they don't give any clues as to where the code may be hiding. I can't afford to pay them for a removal service :(

    Any ideas?

    Thank you ijunkey :) I never harbour spam comments so there's nothing to clear.

    I will submit the new site.xml though.

    Do you not reckon there's any malicious scripts that have been injected into any of my files? I certainly can't find any in the usual places.

    You can check your site for any malware through google webmaster if they have recorded any. Just login to https://www.google.com/webmasters
    and add your site if its not already added.

    and other details

  8. I deleted iJunkey's comment about akismet, which has sod all to do with any of this. Also, removing the sigs. If you don't stop signing your posts with your URL, ijunkey, you will be blocked.

    Well no, but now we know that you ARE hacked.

    Basically delete all the files and copy up fresh and clean new ones. Change your passwords, and so on and so forth.

    Thanks again. I've checked my site with google and it says it's clean. Anyway, I've changed keys, pw and tweaked my .htacces too.

    I'll upload a fresh copy of files tonight :-)
