Hacked WordPress websites being used for spam
I’m not a WordPress user, I’m just being inundated with spam from bogus penis-enlargement and weight-loss scammers, who send emails like this:

Most of the websites appear to be using WordPress, and the link is to a directory inserted by the hackers which contains an advertisement for the product.
I notice that you have instructions for WordPress users who realise their sites have been hacked, and have pointed the owners of the sites that I can contact in this direction – my main problem is that I can’t make contact with all of the owners.
Is there some way that WordPress (as an organisation) can trace affected websites and contact their web administrators?
