I think my blog has been hacked; links appearing that I did not create.

    When I checked the main page of my blog today, I discovered several links from random words in the top post that I did not create. All of these links seem to go to a site called DealCabby. I tried to edit the post to delete the links but I could not make them go away. I have also noticed that, periodically, some of them shift to other random words within the post.

    Does anybody know what I can do to get rid of these unwanted links?

    Thanks very much.

    The blog I need help with is snoozingonthesofa.com.

  2. WordPress.COM does not do word ad links - also your site looks fine to me - you probably have a browser problem

    If you have links from words this might help:

    Thanks, auxclass. It does appear to be an unwanted browser add-on. With the advice given at the site you linked to, I think I have been able to get rid of it (for now, anyway). It is annoying, but I'm happy to know that it was not a problem with the blog.

    Thanks again.

  4. You be welcome
