Do you have a WordPress website? I’ve recently become aware of a rather sneaky hack that happened to 2 of my clients.
Both bloggers noticed that when they posted links from their blogs onto their Facebook page, the wording within the link preview was not from their actual post but an unwelcome ad for a product they had no affiliation with.
Fortunately, I was able to use a free website to scan their blogs and find the specific code that was put into their stylesheet by an unauthorized person. I highly recommend using this or similar free services to determine if your site has been compromised as part of your regular maintenance.
If you find something wrong with your site, contact me at email@example.com for a quote to clean up your site, starting as low as $25! Update 5-2-13: I no longer offer this service and recommend Sucuri’s paid services for site cleanup and maintenance.
Afterward, Google your site to make sure it hasn’t had a warning attached to it in the search engine. If it has, simply contact Google at this link to start the review process to remove the warning.
