Spam links all over my posts?

  1. Suddenly I have all these weird links that I didn't make on my posts that lead to spam websites. They are invisible in edit, and I cannot get rid of them.

  2. That's malware. WordPress.com does not use text enhance or text link ads or pop-up ads or links in comments. If you are seeing those then that's a browser-ad-on issue, or in some cases, it's embedded into free games and/or toolbars downloaded from the internet.

    If what you are seeing whenever you save or update a post or page is an automatically added code/script block at the end of posts and pages that you can't delete then see here: Malware Targets Macs and Windows PCs http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/10/02/malware-targets-macs-and-windows-pcs/

  3. Oh thank you so much. I went into my browser and set security on "high" instead of "medium-high" and that fixed the issue.

    Thank you so much for your input! I was freaking out, haha

  4. You're welcome. If you find that the links start appearing again you may have more work to do to get rid of them when trying to eliminate them as browser-adds. Some are extremely difficult to be shed of.

  5. I will keep that in mind. I'm bookmarking this, haha
    thanks again!
