March’s round-up of WordPress security threats. If you have one of these plugins, make sure you’ve updated to a new version that has the vulnerability fixed, or disable the plugin immediately.
If you feel you may have been hacked, use the malware and virus scanner by Sucuri.
March was a light month for Sucuri, with no WordPress-specific security threats to speak of.

It was a fairly heavy month for exploits and security threats on Packstorm Security.
The biggest exploit to speak of, is PodPress. PodPress has almost 1M downloads on WordPress.org. The plugin has long since been updated from that specific version, so make sure you are up to date if you’re running PodPress.
