I've had this terrible thing happen to me twice this week. Somebody gaine access to my site directories and was sending out spam and were using it as a redirect to some russian bosing site and had me hosting a fake eBay site - i ony discovered the ebay one because they emailed me about it.
I think they gained access through a photogallery called coppermine I installed when I was hosting DMBLGIT the other month and now have removed it (I'll get the pictures back up some other way).
On my blogs I'm using the latest MT3.2 and Wordpress and have changed all my passwords. And I think I've removed all the offending files.
Has anybody any advice on:
1. tracking down any other files that these people may have uploaded
2. Preventing this happen again
3. Are there any security flaws in Movable type/Wordpress I need to do anything about?
4. Is there anything else I should know?
Also now I have noticed when I leave comments on sites they are not appearing - presumably because my domain tomatom.com is nw designated as a spammer. How do I remove this designation and get my reputation back?
