    I need some emergency help!
    I noticed my website had WordPress copyright info on it this morning and I have no idea how it got there. It's been fine for the past 4 months. I can't even login to look around. Can someone please help me out!

    Looks like you got hacked.

    Work your way through these resources and follow all instructions to completely clean your site or you may be hacked again. See FAQ: My site was hacked « WordPress Codex and How to completely clean your hacked wordpress installation and How to find a backdoor in a hacked WordPress and Hardening WordPress « WordPress Codex.

    Change all passwords. Scan your own PC. Use http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/

    Tell your web host you got hacked; and consider changing to a more secure host: Recommended WordPress Web Hosting

    If you can't do the work yourself, consider looking for a reputable person to fix it correctly on jobs.wordpress.net or freelancing sites such as Elance. (It's not a good idea to respond to unsolicited emails from forums users offering to work for you.)
