WordPress Vulnerability Affecting Mobiles

WordPress Vulnerability Affecting Mobiles

I just want to pass on knowledge of this WordPress vulnerability affecting mobiles, detected by AVAST, whereby mobile device users are susceptible to redirection. They can be redirected to a malicious web site from WorbPress blogs where the blogger is using a plugin called OptimizePress. NOTE: I am not using that plugin in this blog.

Read all about it in this AVAST Blog Post published on 17th April 2014.

This is the malicious web site so I have not embedded a link to it — http://149.154.152.129.
