MMM Blog has been Spammed – ignore any fishy links
Looks like the Fortress of the Mustache has been penetrated again!
A spam script somehow hacked into the WordPress system that runs this blog, and sprinkled random evil links for pharmaceutical junk around – one in each article. They are quite obvious, but be sure not to click on them, or you’ll end up sending profits to the evil instigators.
This happened once before in September, and Mrs. M documented how it was fixed: http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2011/09/05/mmm-has-been-hacked/
I thought we had it fixed yesterday, since the links disappeared, but they seem to be on autopilot, usually gone but sometimes there after refreshing the browser. The HTML code of the underlying articles is unaffected when viewed from the editor on my side, so the hack is deeper in the blog’s php code.
It can definitely be fixed, and everything else is working fine in the mean time. Just wanted to let you know, and my apologies for any inconvenience.
