I have a relatively new machine on which I’ve been working extensively with WordPress. A couple of days ago I ran Spybot for the heck of it. I had four spyware programs and I cleaned them all. I did it again this morning and the same four were back. Ad-a-ware, Double-click, Mediaplex, and one other. I’ve cleaned, re-run Spybot, then re-run programs throughout the day and have narrowed it down to the only programs I ran subsqeuent to cleaning:
WordPress Codex in Firefox.
WordPress Support in Firefox.
WordPress Dashboard in Firefox.
Please advise. Why are any sites related to WordPress installing spyware?
