Solved hackers and spammers ?

Post by wendy on July 14th 2012, 3:29 am

i have found a load of links that have been added to my website from some website called TEXT enhance - intext advertising platform.

They have placed random links in posts all over my site, even in my site description which means they have access to my admin panel.

The links are advertisements for different sites and on another forum i help run they have porn in their links.

I have tried always to find the link in the posts ect but it doesnt show up when you go to edit it, and if you click on the link and watch the advertisement the link dissapears afterwards .

funnily enough when i was looking to report this on here, i found the same thing on certain links also, is there any way to stop this from continueing and how can i get rid ?

here is my website
http://its-all-about-you.forumotion.co.uk/forum

you will see what i mean if you check out the word CHAT in my site description.

Thanks
wendy xxx

it shows as a link,the word is underlined like a link, if you hover over it with your mouse it should show an advertisement, infact its done the same thing in my post on here, once i sent it the word chat turned into a link and it held an advertisement too, can you see it ?

all random topics x

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!

Sorry that you are still having problems with Text Enhance. Google remove text enhance from Firefox. The first three entries were from Firefox support center.
