My WordPress account has been hacked.
JohoTheBlog’s RSS feed is showing up in NewzCrawler embedded in spam. Results at Google have begun showing up with spammy titles (“Buy Online, No RX (Prescription) Required! Â» Zoloft online stores”), with long, hacked URLs (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hyperorg.com%2Fblogger%2F2010%2F01%2F31%2F2b2k-clay-shirky-info-overload-and-when-filters-increase-the-size-of-whats-filtered%2F&ei=qpeKS5W9DJOWtgfF4KHqBA&usg=AFQjCNHepOXYe0Oc0OGRVxvmf-eHPkWYkw&sig2=NikO3hBzHj0ku4rfr8-nnQ).
Googling around tells me that there have been similar-seeming attacks on WordPress accounts.This article is quite helpful. I found some odd cruft in my header.php, have changed passwords, and am stilling looking around.
Any other suggestions?
