You might want to read this if you're running Wordpress:
"I found 4,358 self-hosted WordPress blogs that contained many
(usually more than 100) doorway pages that redirected visitors coming

Re: Compromised WordPress Blogs Poison Google Image Searches
Malicious hackers have pounced on a zero-day vulnerability in a widely
used image-resizing utility that ships with themes for the popular
WordPress blogging platform.
The timthumb utility, used to handle cropping, zooming and resizing web
images, is used by millions of blogs running certain themes and because
it writes files into a directory during the image-resizing process, it
can be used to launch web attacks.
None of us is as good as all of us.
