My blog has been hacked and spammed!

Filed under: Computing — admin @ 10:23 am

I have been blogging since 2002, and I started with Blojsom, which was based on Java/JSP. It worked pretty well, but when I switched my ISP a couple of years ago, I could not run my own Tomcat so I switched to WordPress. Though, it is much more user friendly, but I had a lot of problems with SPAM in comments and finally I just disabled. However, lately Spammers have gotten much more sophisticated and they added SPAM to my header.php and footer.php and even modified and added blog entries in the database. As a result, my blog has been removed from the search engines. I manually fixed the contents, but I found that it gets changed every day. I am not quite sure how they are getting access. For now, I have changed my database password and added some ways to detect file changes. Let me know if you have any ways to fix this for good.
