Hi @editor.jnp,

It seems your journal has been compromised. If you have ssh access, try the following sequence:

  1. Back up your database.
  2. Check your files directory for executable extensions:
cd files_dir
find -regextype posix-extended -regex '.*\.(sh|py|php|pl|com|exe|js)'
  1. Check your files directory for malware with Clamav:
cd files_dir
clamscan . -r -i -o # check meaning of options with clamscan --help:
  1. Take note of your mysql name, user and password, Recaptcha information, site url, files dir path and all relevant information from your file. Make a copy of your www/public directory and every custom directory you have created, take note of your installed plugins, create a tar ball of your files directory and your www folder, delete the www folder and reinstall your version of OJS, using the information you took note.

  2. Restore your www/public directory and your custom folders, activate/install your plugins.

This should solve your issue. Locate the spam paragraph, it’s probably located at website settings. Remove it and keep an eye on your install to see if it will return.
