    I am not sure what's going on, I am not a real tech guy but I am anal about security and have anti virus software running and I am crazy about updating.

    Today when I checked out my feed which was re-directing to a feedburner feed, which I deleted, a few minutes ago, because well, most people subscribe to me via YouTube now. Anyway today my feedburner feed was showing stuff from some Pharmacy, my site looks fine, I had a feedburner plugin directing my feed to feedburner I disabled that and then checked my feed in Firefox and it looked fine, however in Feedly and a few other feed programs it is still showing up as the pharmacy.

    Here is my site


    here is my feed address

    Please any help I would appreciate, please I am freaking out.

    I also have Trend Micro on my PC and it's up to date I don't go funny sites, etc, I am super careful, I change passwords, etc

    I think it may have something to do with feedburner, my regular RSS feed looks fine, but my feedburner one is full of spam?

    Please anyone any ideas?

    bump, Please can anyone look at my site and also my feed in Feedly and let me know if you see anything. Please the last 8 years of my life are online.


    I nuked my feedburner feeds just to be sure and I also saw a "sysadmin" on my site that I removed and then changed the passwords.

    Any help?

    I found out what the hack was, it was this, I followed the advice from this article and I was able to get things cleaned up, I would recommend either a security plugin or pay for a service.
