  • Gabi Linko


    I noticed that this website (also others)is abusing some websites running on WordPress to create some illicit back-links. All the infected websites have a code/script
    [Code moderated. Please do not post hack code blocks in the forums. Please use the pastebin]

    stuffed in the header. These links are hidden from visitors and are stealing page-rank.

    Do a simple search in Google you will notice how many websites are infected through this method.

    My question: is this a WordPress security issue?

    No. Those sites will have been hacked for various reasons.



    Catch no balls. You must be clear you are refering to attack vector or infestor using wordpress. They are totally difference.
