    I just noticed this query running on my WP install:

    UPDATE wp_bp_activity SET user_id = 4350, component = 'activity', type = 'activity_update', action = '<a href=\"http://gamereuphoria.com/members/ghfchzt3/\" title=\"teryreysyertyesrt\">teryreysyertyesrt</a> posted an update', content = 'The Ministry of Strategy and Finance projected that the Korean economy will expand by around 5 percent in 2010 from this year and generate 200,<a href=\"http://www.hollistereukoutlet.co.uk\">hollister</a>,000 new jobs,<a href=\"http://www.hollistereukoutlet.co.uk\">hollister uk</a>. The current account is expected to post a $15 billion surplus and consumer prices will go up by just below 3 percent,<a href=\"http://www.hollistercofrances.fr\">hollister</a>.Related articles:\r\n \r\n \r\n <a href=\"http://mansfieldcrush.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=56826&view=unread#unread\">http://mansfieldcrush.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=56826&view=unread#unread</a>\r\n \r\n <a href=\"http://ucenter.thinkclub.com.tw/viewthread.php?tid=1412369&pid=1884095&page=1&extra=page=1#pid1884095\">http://ucenter.thinkclub.com.tw/viewthread.php?tid=1412369&pid=1884095&page=1&extra=page=1#pid1884095</a>\r\n \r\n <a href=\"http://58kj.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=2126709&pid=2288332&page=1&extra=page=1#pid2288332\">http://58kj.net/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=2126709&pid=2288332&page=1&extra=page=1#pid2288332</a>\r\n \r\n So, when in early 1863 King Cheoljong suddenly died childless and without an appointed heir, the power brokers began to look for a successor. The Korean law gave them much freedom of choice. In theory any member of any collateral branch of the royal family could be designated successor.', primary_link = 'http://gamereuphoria.com/members/ghfchzt3/', date_recorded = '2013-01-18 15:39:31', item_id = '', secondary_item_id = '', hide_sitewide = 0 WHERE id = 370386

    I'm guessing its just someone trying to scam the site by adding crap links into their profile... or should I be worried?

    For ongoing maintenance, a few plugins that I use on my project and personal sites are:

    I also found loginlock very good and it locked out many false login attempts.
    If you install the above and login lock it should keep you clear of most trouble.
    Without these and my WP site was troubled with hacks, pharmacy hack was a nightmare and site had to be installed again and got me blacklisted by google!
