    For some reason I keep finding posts that I haven’t written about cartoons published on my blog. This has happened almost a dozen times now and I don’t know how to prevent it. Has anyone experienced a similar problem and how can I resolve it? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is



    Pardon the boilerplate but you should find some help with the info below:

    Hacked Sites

    The only “hacked” sites I have seen here have been people getting the password somehow to a site so you do want to be careful how you log in and use a tough password.

    You should also check to make sure that someone has not added a new user to your site. Problems have also happened when there was more than one Admin. and an Admin left on less than graceful terms.

    Dashboard >> Users

    There have also been a few Posts on “hacked” sites and it was because someone got the Post by Email address and using the Post by Email to send in new Posts, if you have Post by email you can regenerate the address for that feature.

    If you are really concerned you could as the staff to look at your site:

    You could also use a secure log-in in case you are on an unsecured link:

    However WordPress.COM and Akismet strips out bad stuff from the comments that might be harmful code. My best guess is that someone tried to paste some junk into your comment and things were stripped and thus the ones and zeros.

    What’s the URL of the blog? And how many admins are there? And what kind of hack was pulled?
