• Phentermine is a sympathomimetic amine, which is similar to an amphetamine. It is also known as an "anorectic" or "anorexigenic" drug. Phentermine stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which increases your heart rate and blood pressure and decreases your appetite.
• Phentermine is used as a short-term supplement to diet and exercise in the treatment of obesity.
Defined in a website I googled... me thinks Google is on Phentermine, lost too much inventory so you're getting crappy ads ;)?
Are you allowing any file uploads on any sites using PHP, or have any outdated open source projects that may have known vulnerabilities on them?
Just cloaked data to attract specific types of ads?
I wouldn't touch a THING before contacting AdSense support as it's possible one of their AdWords advertisers is in fact a hacking criminal.
This type of thing deserves being escalated as a more serious computer crime, especially if you lost any significant amount of income from AdSense as depending on the amount, it could be yet another felony count.

[edit reason] no specific hosts thanks [/edit]
southernmost: glad I could help! Odds are you won't know how they got in, first step is to clean it all up :)
are they db generated pages?
are there any scripts in use on your site?
did you keep a copy of the pages before you changed them back as this may offer a clue?
Um, did I imply otherwise?
I think it's a normal hack too, but how are they making profit was my point.
You either redirect traffic to a site, or you must be trying to get ads from the bandit to appear to gain money, what other options are there?
Therefore, if no traffic redirect is present, I'm assuming someone using AdWords was responsible for the hack to get more click-thrus to their ads.
because it happened to me!
Good thing we all learn from experience. I would assume that the first thing a webmaster does when he sees off-topic ads persistently re-appearing would be to check the code. I know I do. Anything wrong - check the code first.
Anyway, a cheap host ISN'T going to tell you that the problem was on their end. They'll fix it, but they will NEVER admit fault. So maybe, if it happens again, it may be prudent to switch.
