    Hi there people.

    I have searched codex and google for help on this but I can’t seem to find any answers. Recently my site was hacked by iSKORPiTX – he’s a Turkish hacker who broke some records a few years back.

    You can see the result of his work on one of my wordpress sites:
    ‘<edited>’

    Now – it’s only showing on posts given the category “podcast” but whenever I try to view them I get a black page and the message “Hacked by iSKORPiTX”. I have checked and reinstalled version 2.6.1 of WordPress, reinstalled the theme and had a look through my database and I can’t find any reference to this.

    I knowm, through Google, that the previous bout of hacking by iSKORPiTX was done via a weakness in GoDaddy’s security or something like that so I contacted my hosts and they said they didn’t know anything about it and couldn’t offer support as “unfortunately many PHP/SQL based scripts in wide use on the web are not as secure as they should be and many are vulnerable to attack and SQL injections” and then suggested I contact my scripts author and let them know…

    Anyone seen anything similar, or know what I should do!

    Sorry if there isn’t enough information here – please do ask for more if you need it! Thanks in advance.

    Andy.
