    This video was forwarded to me. Wondering if there is actually any need to be concerned.

    Just keep your WordPress install up to date and you’ll have no worries.

    It’s also good to follow the instructions in here –

    Lastly, the exploit is nonsense. He’s just copying random stuff into a html page he made just to make the video look legit.

    Right, and thanks for the reply Jon. I was not very concerned with my sites and to be honest obviously did not take a close enough look at the video.

    As for those sites out there that are not taking security seriously – developing is nothing without it. I am sharing the link you provided with some people who I know need it 🙂

    Thanks,
    Barry

    Thanks for reporting it nevertheless Barry.

    I have sent the video to the Security Team. They’ll check it out either way!

    In the future, please feel free to send in security issues to security [at] wordpress.org

    Cheers!!
