    Please help me! My friend clicked on my blog (http://hidden-films.com/) and said the following happened to him:

    Now everything I search only goes through Hidden Films. Example: If I try to use Google Search to find “Runwatcher” what I get is:

    http://hidden-films.com/?s=runwatcher

    Whatever this is has infected both of my laptops and I can’t search for anything that is not on hidden films.

    Any suggestions???

    Can someone please help me figure out if my blog is infecting users?? I have sometimes received spam comments (and used Akismet to block them, ever since) but this is the first time I’ve gotten a complaint from anyone accessing my blog. Let me know, thanks!

    The blog I need help with is hidden-films.com.

    Your blog is not infecting users. Your friend is technologically unsophisticated and from the sounds of it his browser is already infected by something. He needs to disable his add-ons. One of them is probably causing this.

    You don’t even have a search box on your blog. WP.com blogs are set up in such a way that they are pretty much invulnerable to the kinds of attacks and malware that is common elsewhere; that’s one reason they’re so popular. I cover hackers as a journalist, and I assure you there is no virus on your website.

    TERRIFIC idea for a site, by the way.
