Everyday WordPress Sites Leaks

Everyday WordPress Sites Leaks.

There are constant campaigns targeting WordPress sites "Basically a clever BlackHat SEO trick".

Today alone 15,000 sites were compromised !

The hackers are able to modify over 100 files per website on an average, which is an approach that contrasts dramatically from other attacks of this kind wherein only a limited number of files are tampered with to reduce footprint and escape detection.

Now for the security researcher, we see several thousands of compromised WordPress sites every day published on hacker forums.

Whilst WordPress is popular, it is also a very "Hack friendly" CMS or Blog, but still being used by large security firms like Kaspersky.

In my mind this does not make much sense, for security firms using this kind of "thing", but it is their choice.

You need to be on the lookout for these files in particular:

Most commonly infected pages consist of wp-signup.php, wp-cron.php, wp-links-opml.php, wp-settings.php, wp-comments-post.php, wp-mail.php, xmlrpc.php, wp-activate.php, wp-trackback.php, and wp-blog-header.php.

The injected code initiaties a redirect to a PNG image hosted on a domain named "ois[.]is" which, instead of loading an image, takes the website visitor to a Google search result URL of a spam Q&A domain.

It is likely that the admin or user site passwords has been Bruteforced !

Thousands of WordPress sites, with cPanel access are posted on hacker forums for free on daily basis.

At a minimum 1,000 sites per day.

Easy to use doesn't mean it is safe to use, although it requires almost no tech-knowledge.
