Hi everyone,

I think my site, gamerwidow.com, has been hacked.......I'm running WP
2.6.5.  I know I should upgrade but I'm a bit daunted by the task to
be honest.  Anyway, I tried logging into wp-admin and although I'm
using the correct credentials it says 'invalid username' and will not
let me log in.

Furthermore, when you do a search on google for "WoW Widows" my site
is the very first one listed but the page title says "Viagra Sales"!
I've tried searching this problem but the best I've found was to
manuallly disable plugins, clear your cache and try again.  I've also
tried resetting my password and checking the db to make sure my admin
account was still set to my email address -- all to no avail.

I need help and would love it if anyone could!  I used to do wp
customization for a living but i haven't done it in a couple of years
(which is why i'm afraid to upgrade to 3), I'm most familiar with 2.5.

Thanks for reading,
