I have been hacked this week by “hellomyhony.com” which blocked access to my desktop and redirected page visitors to their site.
With the help of the Pinnacle theme forum, I’ve removed the offending code and recovered my site.
BUT what has come out is that 20 people using the Pinnacle theme all have the plugin YellowPencil installed. It seems that this plugin is the culprit.
I can’t find any way report this to WordPress, but there are probably thousands of users who may be affected.
I don’t have the skill to look for the payload and determine whether YellowPencil is an innocent provider, but as a responsible site owner I’d like to report the suspicions.
