We have become aware of a WordPress hack that seems to be affecting WordPress 1.9.2, the current latest version of WordPress. No one seems to be sure how the hack is happening but the effects seem to be (according to ghacks.net):
Attackers either manipulate the blog to spread malware (more recently) or to cloak links that are only visible to search engines
No one seems to have mentioned anything on the WordPress forums, but you can read more on the following blogs:
- Christopher Penn – Find the Latest WordPress hack (this website includes a fix, but not protection, yet)
- WPblogger – Google Cloaking Hack Targeting WordPress
We’ll keep you posted if we get any updates. In the meantime, you might want to install a WordPress plugin like Antivirus for added protection.
