    Erroneneous spam text appearing when view webpage but not in WordPress!, by Azam

    We have a bizarre issue with the homepage of our WordPress website. In one paragraph it has jumbled up letters in the display.

    A couple of lines in the second paragraph are showing superimposed on top of one another.

    When we highlighted the text to copy and paste, see below, it seems to be all there but not visually. The spammy wording highlighted in bold (see below) is scary!

    I’ve checked the website copy and code and the text advertising GetStrattera, which is hyperlinked to the GetStrattera website (which is a dodgy pharmaceuticals website), doesn’t appear anywhere in WordPress or via Control Panel searches.

    Indeed, the logs show that the text on the homepage hasn’t been changed for three years.

    There has been no hacks into WordPress. Nobody has logged in except me.

    The spammy text advertising GetStrattera.com only appears on selected computers. Can you see it on yours?

    How can we fix this issue please?

    Extract from website:
