    I think my blog has been hacked. There is a security warning telling me that my blog contains content from a site that I never added. What can I do about it?

  2. 1. If you can log-in go here > Users > All Users and delete any user that does not belong there.

    2. Disable post by email > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-email/

    3. Disable post by voice > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-by-voice/

    4. Change your blog password to a very difficult one > http://en.support.wordpress.com/passwords/#change-your-password

    5. Use a secure, encrypted connection to connect to your Dashboard. Under Users → Personal Settings, check the box that says “Always use HTTPS when visiting administration pages, and click Save Changes.

    6. Go to your email program and change the password to a very difficult one

    P.S. This is frequently caused by images bloggers links to. If you can log-in the check your images and make sure they are not from the "site I never added".
