16,000 WordPress sites hacked!

 
 

Security researcher Daniel Cid has said that at least 15,769 WordPress websites, and probably more have been compromised this year, half of them slipping past Googles Safe Browsing checks.

The most popular content management system represented the largest share of the 21,821 sites that were studied. In the same period, it was also found that 3099 Joomla! sites were also hacked.

Almost three quarters of all compromised websites that were studied were backdoored. This means the criminals had a massive scale of what they could do, they could load malicious payloads, target visitors and also use the websites for further hacks.
