Unwanted meta data being poked into header (3 posts)

    Hi.

    Perhaps someone can help resolve this issue. As of recently, whenever I view the source of one of my wordpress pages, I see unwanted meta data displayed (example at bottom of this quest). I have tried installing all the same plugins into different wordpress sites without producing the same error.

    I have also used grepWin to search a local copy of the envolved wordpress file base. This information only shows up in the cache files, but deleting the cache files will not remove the problem.

    I've run out of ideas. Any help here?

    ------------------------------------------------
    Unwanted code that shows up in the header and the meta tags. The Google account number shows as inactive
    --------------------------------------------------

    <script type="text/javascript">

    var _gaq = _gaq || [];
    _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-27917097-1']);
    _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

    (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
    })();

    </script><div style="display:none"><h1>online dating</h1>">online dating</h1><h1>Magento Hosting</h1>">Magento Hosting</h1><h1>dating online</h1>">dating online</h1><h1>adult dating</h1>">adult dating</h1><h1>online dating</h1>">online dating</h1><h1>webcam girls</h1>">webcam girls</h1><h1>dating online</h1>">dating online</h1><h1>webcams</h1>">webcams</h1><h1>sex chat</h1>">sex chat</h1><h1>adult dating</h1>">adult dating</h1></div>

    Sounds like your site may have been hacked. Try looking for encrypted code in your site's files. Hackers like to use base64_decode, but there are lots of ways to encrypt code.

    This Codex article describes some steps to take:
