Spam Injection

  1. I don’t see how spammers could inject code into the WP software or the site itself. I’ll admit I don’;t know much about PHP – used it once because it was already in place. But sounds like there are some serious security vulnerabilities in the ISP or the software itself. (Dang, can I state the obvious! 😉 )

  2. Great info; hopefully this helps all the others who’ve had this kind of problem. I had the exact same thing happen to me. I took the same steps. It appears i’m clean now and have been since i did the work a couple months ago, but i’m still getting the spammy incoming links on that dashboard widget. Le sigh.

    1. Jeremy – I’m sure my blog is clean now, but I still get those links, too. Unfortunately, you can’t control the text someone uses to link to your site.
