  • I see in my Web logs that someone tried to access a URL on my site with “” appended to the end.

    A Google search tells me that it seems to be an exploit targeted at WordPress 2.8.1.

    I haven’t yet figured out what this exploit does and how to check if my site was compromised. Does anyone know?

  • Please kindly install necessary security plugin before it is too late. My blog also was hacked several time with iframe injection. I would suggest you to kindly go through this article. Which will help you: [link moderated]


    If you’re still on 2.8.1 it’s high time to upgrade! Your 3 versions behind.

    Yeah, I just found out I was 3 versions behind because I am actually using WordPress MU and the 2.8.1 version had a broken automatic upgrade message in the admin panel so I wasn’t being notified of the newer versions.

    I’ve upgraded now but I am still wondering how to find out if that wannabe hacker already did hack something on my site.
