SoakSoak Malware Compromises Over 100,000 WordPress Websites

Security Researchers recently discovered yet another threat to websites running a popular content management system (CMS), WordPress. This threat, which has been dubbed SoakSoak, is the latest malware threat specifically designed to target websites operating the CMS and has already resulted in over 11,000 domains being blacklisted by Google. WordPress has become extremely popular and can be found on the backend of nearly 60 million websites worldwide (meaning approximately 1 in every 6 websites run the CMS) so it’s no wonder hackers have started targeted the infrastructure more regularly in the last few months.
