My WordPress Got hacked.

  • Hey all,

    Ive ran into a little problem today when it seems that some spammer used a vulnerability in and older version of wordpress and was able to inject stuff into my database.

    To give you an example

    http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&ned=us&scoring=n&q=site%3Adbtechno.com&btnG=Search

    google news picked up the feeds that the hacker injected.

    Now my question is how did this happen and how can i prevent this from happening. Will this issue be fixed if and when i upgrade to the newest version ? IF i must upgrade to the newest version will this have any effect on my theme ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you all for your time
