WordPress Website Being Attacked? Occupy Austin (4 posts)

    Hello All,
    I'm currently building the Bank Action portion of the Occupy Austin website. Goal is to move money from Corporate banks to local credit unions. We are having some very weird issues and I can only suspect some nefarious actions going on. Maybe someone can help me understand what may be going on and if we are being attacked and what I may be able to do about it. If you don't like the movement save it for someone that gives a shit and keep banking at institutions to big to fail and have severely hurt our economy.
    Ok, enough preaching. Here is the problem.
    The word bank keeps disappearing from my code. The word bank in particular. Once I update the work bank disappears in random places breaking many code elements.
    Also on pages random words of "bank" and "bank accounts" are generating links that go to a search engine "fast search surf canyon" searching for those terms.
    Video example of Bank disappearing
    Thank You for any help, Jacob

  2. You might want to run your site through a scanner and see if your site is infected with Malware.

    If it is, here are some instructions on what to do. http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_My_site_was_hacked

    In addition to the link that Christine posted, here are a few more links that malware fighters use to scan websites:



    Unmask Parasites



    Norton Safe Web

    TrendMicro Site Safety Center

    There are a few more, but these are the well recognized sites.

  4. FWIW, We're equal oppertunity forum volunteers. We don't care if you're the big banks or the 99% when it comes to support. Everyone gets help here (but if it's porn or other similar stuff, please tag your post NSFW so those of us who need to worry about that can be warned).

    Go through http://codex.wordpress.org/Hardening_WordPress while you're at it, and consider grabbing http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/limit-login-attempts/ and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bad-behavior/

    The former will help if you're being brute-force password attacked, and the latter will stop bots who might be trying to pick you apart.
