Hello,

Could you please have a look at my website: ptp-roman.org ? Or could you please tell me what to do to fix this?

In the past months, automated articles have been posted on it.

Thank you for your help!

Hello @gigibirjo welcome to Trac and thank you for posting.

From what you have said it does not look like a core WordPress bug. Trac is for finding and fixing bugs in WordPress core.

To my understanding it looks like your site is somehow exposed to bots. This might have happened due to installation of some plugins which have security vulnerabilities.

Because this started happening recently, please check what plugin you have installed lately. I would suggest you to disable such plugin/s and check if this still persists.

Choosing a plugin is very important. Before you install, check for its compatibility with your version of WordPress, last updated date and of course how many active installs were done till date. More the number of installs better the safety you gain!
