    Hey skabt,

    I don't think it has anything to do with Akismet. The akismet plugin is most powerful anti-spam solution available for WordPress. If you still think Akismet is culprit here, then check out GASP anti-spam plugin - http://www.wpkube.com/confirm-you-are-not-a-spammer/

    Do you have been update your Akismet version? Or you can combine with another spam blocker plugin to get powerful performance.

    report from hosting, script injected thru akismet :
    email :
    We run some checking and would like to update you on the reason of the injected script.

    196.29.210.100 - - [21/Oct/2012:00:53:06 +0800] "GET //wp-content/themes/Webly/cache/s.php?x=img&img=ext_css HTTP/1.1" 200 570 "http://propertyagent.my//wp-content/themes/Webly/cache/s.php?x=ls&d=%2Fhome%2Fproperty%2Fdomains%2Fpropertyagent.my%2Fpublic_html%2Fwp-content%2Fplugins%2Fakismet&sort=0a" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1"

    As you can see, akismet plugins were injected and make changes through the page:
    http://propertyagent.my//wp-content/themes/Webly/cache/s.php

    s.php is the backdoor script that used by the attacker to upload the malicious script.
    Its recommended to change your used theme on your page, as obviously there is vulnerables on the theme 'Webly' you using.
