    My website pomomusings.com was subject to the malicious code-injection and JohnnyA admin username addition a few weeks ago.

    But now Google is blocking my site again because of some malware. Someone ran a security check on my site using sucuri.net and found this:


    I am running WordPress 3.0 and have all extremely strong passwords picked through the 1Password application. So it appears that there is a security risk to using WP Audio Player plugin.

    I can't get in touch with the creator of the Plugin abut hopefully he will be made aware of this soon, because it's a really great plugin but I can't keep it activated on my site if it's going to cause malware to get inserted into my site.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    I'm the developer for Audio Player. The screenshot you linked to makes no sense to me. It looks nothing like the actual JavaScript I wrote for the plugin. I scanned one of my own sites that uses Audio Player with the same service you used and nothing came up.

    It must be something else...
