    Around midnight mytime tonight, 8 posts of unknown origin suddenly published to my Facebook/Twitter accounts. They did link to pages on my website, but I cannot find these pages anywhere on my site. Nor are they in posts section. As far as I can tell, something at 12:05AM (NST) grabbed control of my SNAP plugin, and randomly posted 8 posts that contained gibberish text and links to non-existant PDFs.

    Anyone else experience this before?

    Thanks for you response, I was able to determine afterwards that one of my users setup a REALLY bad password and it was brute forced by a bot. After removing that user the problem went away.
