Website hacked – help please
This is the problem –
When some links are clicked they take you take a completely different url.
Sometimes even a widget menu link to category takes you to some advertising site url.
Problem is – not every time, or the same link, It seams to jump about all over the site making it difficult to track down.
I am also getting clicks to my adsense account yet have no adsesne adverts on the site?
I really don’t know how to track this down or where to start….
Any help would be appreciated.Mod

Once you have clean up the site, you may also want to consider adding a 401 type security to your site. I had a lot of login attempts by unknown sources and I added the 401 to wp-admin section. Since then, I had very few direct login attempts (401 is not 100% bullet proof either). I wrote about how to add a 401 restriction here; http://sanuja.com/blog/protect-and-secure-wordpress-admin
All the best.
