Google Redirect?

  • The strangest thing is occurring with my blog. When I go to Google and search for one of my keywords and click through to my blog I’m redirected to another site. However if I just enter my blogs URL address in my browser I am taken to my blog. I can’t seam to figure out what’s going on here. I have the latest version of WordPress installed 2.5.1. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    WHAT in what you just wrote gives us any information??????

    You have probably been hacked. Check your site’s .htaccess file(s) for any referrer-based redirects.

    I was hacked by the same way (the visitors go to your-needs.info). Strafe, update to the more newest version of WordPress, that is the more secure cure.

    But if you like to find a cure by yourself, go to your phpmyadmin if you have, and go to wp_options and find the table of the active_plugins and find anything in like an image running as plugin.

    If you can’t find anything, try to find into the extensive list of WordPress files for a suspictious code or image with the names “_old.gif” or another.

    You can find more information about the attack in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/179395?replies=2#post-770581

    strafe already said this:

    I have the latest version of WordPress installed 2.5.1.

    you both are exactly why I didnt answer — its not safe to assume something withiut more information.

    Then try to do the tips that I describe into this thread, because maybe you update the blog when you’re already hacked and this not resolve the attack.

    Read the last post that I’ve published: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/179395 and try to get to this place to Matt or another WordPress developer in order to alert them, because a bunch of websites are attacked.
