Hacker Installed

I found this plugin installed on my multisite installation on the same day that I found several instances of a Webshell script installed in various locations. I don't know the relationship this plugin has to the hackers but I know that they installed it and used it to install Webshell scripts that took several days to find and remove.

Hacked as Well

Hacker installed this plugin, and then from what I can gather, somehow used it to blast our server with invalid SSH login attempts. Ate up all of the server's RAM and all sites stopped responding. Had an entire 2 days of downtime for 7 sites.

Also Hacked

This plugin mysteriously found its way onto my site around the same time that my site went down and just displayed LOADS of adverts for Nike Air Jordans. Definitely a hack.

An obvious hack.

My website's wp_options table was spammed and finally crashed to white screen of death. Only apparent clue is that there were two instances of this Login Wall -plugin on my WordPress installation. They have appeared from nowhere at the same time that my site went down. Now I'm struggling to get the site working again and my content restored. Please WP admins / Professionals, do something about this! 🙁

Hacker installing Login Wall

I have been tracking the source of a mysterious installation of this plugin on a site I manage. It has occurred several times over the last weeks and I finally traced it to the site having been breached. The hacker has gained one of the admin credentials and seems insistent on installing Login Wall plugin amongst other things. The last instance was sourced at IP address 222.91.195.227 in China.
