    Compromised Wordpress Sites - Security Risk

    I think a few people here use Wordpress - FYI


    https://www.mysonicwall.com/sonicale...article&id=412

    Description


    SonicWALL UTM research team has received reports of a new mass compromise of Wordpress websites leading to drive-by malware download using the Black Hole Exploit kit. The malware spreads simply by visiting an infected page on a compromised Wordpress based websever. The Blackhole exploit kit is known for targetting a list of known vulnerabilities on the target system and when successful it often downloads and runs a malicious executable. The exploits we observed here target Java based vulnerabilities. Depending on whether the system is patched or not, if exploit is successful it will lead to the download of a malicious executable without user consent.

    Some additional detail:

    Massive Compromise of WordPress-based Sites but

    Affects version 3.2.1 of Wordpress - doesn't seem to affect the current version (3.3.1). A tell-tale sign that you've been hacked is a random .htm file in the uploads directory (/wp-content/uploads/)
