    We are seeing lots of WordPress sites with spam hidden inside the wp-includes directory. Many big sites got compromised as well and you should check your sites.

    If your site is infected, can you save the content and send to us for analysis?

    A quick way to check your site:

    1-Search on google for spam words + inurl:wp-includes + yoursite
    2-Do a quick scan of of the wp-includes dir for files that shouldn't be there.

    There is another method being used too, where a .files is created:

    So check both places. If anyone have more info, let me know.
