Account hacked with spam post.

  1. I didn't make this post:
    http://pagz.wordpress.com/2012/10/14/im-getting-paid/

    I've gone in and changed my password. I'm curious how this happened.

    The blog I need help with is pagz.wordpress.com.

  2. Please do not delete the post but make it Private so that Staff can have a look at it. Thanks

  3. i had this issue as well today! i never click dodgy links and i didn't have any rogue applications connected to any of my blogs yet several of them have a spam post (which i already deleted before i thought to look on the forum)

  4. Disable Post by Email and change your email password.

  5. And do please read the post that 1tess linked to. It has relevant information about password security.

  6. Thank you for reporting this. We are aware of the situation and our team is actively working on a solution. In the meantime, you can delete any unauthorized posts on your account, if you haven’t already.

    While we will be resetting the passwords for any affected accounts ourselves, you can also reset your password via your Settings tab on the WordPress.com home page:
