Trashed

My site has been trashed again. 15 hours ago unknown person (persons) attached a number of  definitely uninvited,  filthy, disgusting posts to my blog reading list and I don't know how to block/get rid  them. Has anybody else encountered this problem? Help!
I'll leave my site up for a couple of days in the hope that you or Google can show me how to block these scums. If there isn't any other way, I'm going to have to take my site down and start again.

  1. I would suggest just bookmarking your favourite sites....put them on your 'blogs I follow' list on your home page and delete your reading list from dashboard. What a shame that this is happening.

  2. Have you contacted blogger Molly?

  3. Step number one is to change your Blogger password, unless they have changed it for you, in which case you will have to insist on Google's help.

    Step two is go to the INTERNAL workings of your router/modem, and re-set you INTERNAL passwords for that.

    I don't mean your WiFi password, I mean the internal one for your router. They come out of the factory with 'ADMIN' for the user, and 'PASSWORD' for the password. not many people bother to set or change these passwords, because they are too busy trying to get an internet connection, and the scumbags know this.

    Look up the access number for you router - Belkin, Netgear, or whatever - and make sure you wire-in the router with a YELLOW CABLE from the back of your computer to the modem/router, even if it is normally connected with WiFi. When you type the number into a search, it will begin with 192.

    The router's normal page will appear on your screen, and you need to go to 'basic settings' in a menu in order to set or re-set your password. If you want to use WiFi, then you just unplug the yellow cable and reconnect with the radio signal.

    Then you should be safe in the future.

    1. If this isn't clear, then type in a similar help message to a Google search, and you will get a step by step guide on the above. Don't get side-tracked by your WiFi password though - this is ALL to do with your router's access password, which can be under attack from anywhere in the world, unless you set the INTERNAL password for your box. Good luck!

  4. Sorry, Molly, I've never come across this, but I do hope you can get it sorted out. My first instinct would be to change my Blogger password, but after that I'd be at a loss.

  5. This is awful. I haven't encountered this, so I don't have a clue. Heaven help me if this happens to me. Hope you can get it fixed Molly.

  6. Thankfully Tom is helping. I get spam comments all the time and delete them daily.

  7. You might want to try to convince Tom to pay you a visit, Molly. He sounds like he has been through this himself and knows of what he is speaking.

    I remember when Spam was just a meat in a can.

  8. Having just suffered from a nasty virus that put up porn and on-line dating sites by the hundred, I sympathise. I've also just had to un-follow a blog that has suddenly turned into a born-again Christian rant; THAT was difficult enough.

  10. Molly I remember another blogger having this issue a couple of months back. They contacted Blogger and Blogger was able to assist them in getting rid of the issue. I would suggest doing that!
