Critical flaws in Wordpress Plugins


If you own a WordPress site, make sure you are staying on top of updates—not just for the core platform, but for all the themes and plugins, too. WordPress powers over 70 million Websites around the world, making it an attractive target for cyber-criminals. Attackers frequently hijack vulnerable WordPress installations to host spam pages and other malicious content. Researchers have uncovered a number of serious vulnerabilities in these popular WordPress plugins over the last few weeks.

WordPress has a fairly painless update process for its plugins as well as core files. Site owners need to regularly check for and install updates for all the updates. It's also worth checking through all the directories, such as wp-includes, to make sure unknown files haven't taken up residence.
