Account HACKED by SPAM
I haven’t logged-in to my wordpress.COM account for a while now and to my surprise, I got an email saying that someone liked my “post”.
This is the SPAM Post: http://allanreyesphoto.wordpress.com/2012/10/14/nothing-like-getting-paid/
I DID NOT POST THAT.
I changed my password already.
I checked my users but nothing was added.
My email and this wordpress.COM account does not use the same password.
My “post by email” feature is turned off.
My “post by voice” is also turned off.
The blog I need help with is allanreyesphoto.wordpress.com.
You seem to have done the standard checks: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/i-was-hacked-looking-for-info?replies=4#post-1040431
I have flagged this for staff help – maybe they have an idea – in the mean time please set the Post to “Draft” so it is not messing up your site – the rouge post also has a banned link so we want to keep you out of the TOS problems – setting the Post back to draft still leaves all the info for the Post – Go to your edit Post page and in the upper right corner of the screen under “Publish” you can change the status to “Draft”
Who is listed as the Author? Look down the Edit post page toward the bottom –
Please do not delete the post but make it Private so that Staff can have a look at it. Thanks
