why do I keep getting other sites advertising on mine?

Post by leolass » Wed Dec 26, 2007 5:44 am

I am new to joomla and everytime I leave for a few days I come back and log in to admin area to find my virus scanner goes silly and says I have a win32 trojan and then see my homepage(which is offline) with all this garbage on it? links galore to medication sites, viagra, mp3 and the list goes on.
how can I stop this  ???
