Botnet Attacks WP Websites – CDC Sites Protected

We here at the CDC Tech/IT Committee strongly suggest that you at least understand a little bit about security issues which surround the operation of your website.

This morning WordFence published an in-depth analysis which their forensic team has completed on a botnet (a network of private computers infected with malicious software and controlled as a group without the owners’ knowledge, e.g., to send spam messages) that is attacking WordPress websites. They go into some detail on how it compromises your website, what malware it installs and how the attackers profit from your hacked website.

You can find the full post on their blog here.
