A friend of mine on wordpress came to me this morning with several concerns about her wordpress.com site. Unfortunately, I can't find the answers that she needs. She found a shortened link in the dashboard of her blog. I was able to use link expander, and found the link to be - "http://plugin.name/hotsting Jumbo. info."(without spaces) My friend also feels that the dashboard of her blog looks unusual? I did a bit of research on the plugin, however, I can't determine whether this is a mysql injection, if someone is trying to operate her blog from another location using cloud service on a Linux. Or possibly this is common on wordpress? Personally, I have had my blog over a year and I've never seen anything like this on my blog. We have all had issues with a hacker as of late, that's why this is so suspicious. Can anyone help? I feel very uncomfortable knowing a link shortening site (trunc) was used before posting this link/plugin.
The blog I need help with is awkward-reality.com.
