    A number of sites I work with got hit by this hack last week - "Hacked by Gabby" - it replaces the sidebar widgets with a Javascript text widget. As hacks go, relatively harmless, but annoying nonetheless.

    I'm trying to find out how the hack penetrated the sites - PHP, WordPress core, a plugin, a theme, etc. Until I know the attack vector, I cannot take useful steps to protect these sites.

    Google searching has not pulled up anything useful, and I'm surprised I couldn't find anything here either since it seems to be a fairly wide-ranging hack.

    SO, anybody have information to share? Thank you.

    Review your sites at Sucuri to discover if you are hosting malware (which is why most hacks break into sites and servers)
