    Hi everyone,

    I'm not sure how to explain this properly. My friend's blog was hacked a few weeks ago and a search on google with "site:example.com" came out with tons of pharma post spam.

    He fixed it by upgrading to the latest version, so it doesn't seem to be any corrupted files or database anymore. However if you go on the site using one of these links (e.g. http://www.example.com/?scu=90&co=zoloft-ecstasy), the homepage will come up but the next/previous links will direct you to http://www.example.com/page/2/?scu=90&co=zoloft-ecstasy

    We're wondering if that means that the site is still infected or not, anyone knows? Thanks in advance for the replies...

    I would suggest re-installing wordpress with a fresh copy from this website. Then just download a security plugin for wordpress.

    You can re-install wordpress by simply going to Tools>Upgrade>Re-install

    I would lean towards helping posters from more recent than 10 months ago ;-)
