When I do view source on my Web page, I find lots of garbage hidden links.
I didn’t put them there and my blog has been removed from google because of these links (I actually received a notice from Google about this).
It isn’t really clear to me if the unwanted content is in the database or a template (the WordPress software) as I’ve just started to investigate.
I don’t know how often WordPress gets hacked but I did a search for some of the text in my message from google and found that there are a lot of people who got hacked. Here is the text I searched for: “While we were indexing your webpages, we detected that some of your pages”.
Is the answer to this problem to just upgrade to the latest WordPress?
I expected to find something at this site mentioning it. I poked around a bit in the site and the forum and I don’t see anything yet.
One problem is to get rid of the unwanted garbage, but the other is to prevent it.
Has anyone seen this?
