Have I been hacked?? (6 posts)

    I have four empty websites running on individual installs of WordPress (one-click via Dreamhost). Naturally I get no traffic other than from myself, however, looking at my Google Analytics, I see that recently every one of these websites has been visited twice from the same town in Brazil - 'Rio Grande do Sul'. It's ringing alarm bells that the same person seems to have visited each of my sites, especially since they're not related or linked to each other whatsoever, and there's no content on them...

    Have I been hacked or something? Any ideas what I can do to check/resolve it??

    Thanks so much, David.

    Unlikely. Have you tried scanning the sites for signs of a hack?

    Thanks for the links; I've run the domains through them and they're all returning clean. That's a relief. I wonder what caused the visits then... I don't get it - 4 unrelated sites with nothing on and I get a visit from the same remote place. I'd love to know how/why that happened! Thanks again for the scanning suggestion :)

    dcatorp, if you submit a ticket and ask DreamHost for a hackScan, we'd be happy to see if something else is going on for you.

    Let's not forget Redleg's checking page as well:

    Great for checking individual pages as well.
