Unauthorized Publication

  1. There was a post published on my blog that was not published by me, and I am the sole writer of my blog. How did that happen, and what can be done to avoid the repeat? I hope my account has not been hacked.
    Blog url: http://hemrajsingh.wordpress.com/

  2. Specifically what is the post?

  3. Just the link to some website, and a single promotional sentence. I deleted the post forthwith, of course.

  4. I can publish articles, but no links, photos or quotes.
