Support » Plugin: Password Protected » Beware: Site got hacked because of exploit related to this plugin

  • It always worked fine, but last month it has been infected with malware to launch phishing attacks. Even though wp/site and plugins were updated. Be very careful.

  • Hi Rob,

    If you have any further information about this I would appreciate you messaging me or starting a support thread so I can look at this further.

    I have received no other reports about exploits related to this plugin.

    As a note, I have seen instances of Malware introduced by weaknesses in other plugins that allow files to be written to various parts of a WordPress install including other plugins and the theme so it’s possible that you may have found malware in the plugin installed on your site that didn’t originate from this plugin.

    Many thanks

    Ben
