    Hello, i run SoleSirius using WP 2.8.5 and until recently i've never had any problems with my version of WP or WP at all. Now for the last couple of days my site has been randomly redirecting to other sites including spiketv.com and yellowpages.com. I'm pretty much lost when it comes to dealing with any trouble shooting. i'd appreciate any help.

    Thanks.

    Judging by the hidden iframe and obfuscated javscript at the bottom of your source code, I'd say it's been hacked.

    These should get you started:

    Don't forget to scan your computer for malware etc. Just in case something is snaffling your FTP password.

  3. Looking at your page source makes me think you've been hacked because of two long, encoded javasrcripts in footer.php:

    <script language=JavaScript>eval(unescape('var%20codelock_bas%3D%27ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789....lots more    ==')); </script>

    It's a free theme, so that code might be from the theme. If not, How to Completely Clean a Hacked WordPress Install
