Wordpress hit by massive botnet attack
As usual, Wordpress is under attack again. All too often we see people using Wordpress as a web authering tool rather than the blogging software it was intended for. Most people who have been exploited aren't even aware that they are being used to attack other systems or offload malware and phishing scams.
Wordpress and its 64 million blogs are currently under attack by a botnet of at least 90,000 computers strong. The core engine of wordpress is reasonably secure, but the add-on facility that gives Wordpress its functionality is the messy part. Once you begin to install the tons of addons to make wordpress functional as a website, you lose the inherent security and live with what you get.
The reality is that it is the whole web developmment industry which is at fault for these exploits. The process of hiring a web developer who will install wordpress, then once completed customizing the install will get paid and move on to the next client leving the security of the installed resource up to no one. The end user is often afraid to break the wordpress install, and the automatic updating facility will work, but only if the site was installed in a conventional manner. Many Joomla, and Drupal sites suffer the same issues.
If you choose to use a product like Wordpress, you should be aware of the steps to secure it, or hire someone who is.
