WordPress Security Threats – Apr/2013

April was a heavy month full of surprises. Two high profile caching plugins, W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache were both exploited and require immediate updates if you have them activated.

Additionally, there were widespread botnet attacks, brute-forcing password attempts and much more. Take a look below at what Sucuri wrote throughout April.

Sucuri Coverage

Packet Storm Coverage

In addition, I covered LiquidWeb sending out notifications to its customers about WordPress security.

It was certainly an active month for Sucuri’s reporting on WordPress hacks, threats, exploits, and vulnerabilities, but fairly quiet on Packtstorm’s site.

As always, try to stay up to date with WordPress security and keep your plugins updated, WordPress core too.
