Alright, so the most popular website platform called WordPress recently suffered a huge blow in the security department. Recently, over two million web pages were hacked on over 39,000 separate domain names hosted on WordPress. Being the most popular doesn’t automatically make you the most secure, the most valuable or even an appreciating asset. WordPress was originally created to be a blog site. WordPress is FREE open source platform meaning that the code written to run and fix these constant updates comes from literally all over the world. Developers actually hand over their talented code and programming for FREE to the WordPress community. Now, it appears hackers have found a way to install a hidden backdoor and gain full access to victim’s servers who have trusted their information of a WordPress website platform.
According to both Website Magazine and BleepingComputer "Attackers have reportedly defaced over 39,000 domains(2 million pages). It appears that attacks on WordPress sites using a vulnerability in the REST API have risen. Initial attacks using the WordPress REST API flaw were reported on February 6, 2017 by web security firm Sucuri, who said four groups of attackers defaced over 67,000 pages. This number grew to over 100,000 pages the next day, but according to a report from fellow web security firm WordFence, these numbers have skyrocketed to over 2 million pages, as there are now 20 hacking groups involved in a defacement turf war."
