Support » Fixing WordPress » Spammer changing my posts and adding links

  • This problem start with version 3.1.1 and after it started we upgraded to 3.1.2 but the problem persisted.

    Our site was hacked and a single link was added to each one of our blog posts. We removed each link manually only to have them return the next day. This cycle has reaccured over the past 3 days even after doing and upgrade to the new version.

    None of the static pages were effected, only the blog page.

    We have shut down our blog until we can find a resolution. Any help would be appreciated.

    I would log in via ftp and delete the entire wp-admin and wp-plugins folder. NOT the wp-content.

    Then re-upload fresh copies.

    I would also re-upload fresh copies of the files in the root and fresh copies of any plugins you have installed.

    Once you’ve done that also go to your hosting provider and change your FTP.

    Also read the info here: –

    I have followed your instructions to the letter! I will let you know within a few days if we have any more issues.
    Thank you for your assistance.
