WordPress search engine hack

Published by at 4:38 am under Hacking

WordPress installations are being hacked and having all their searches directed to anyresults.net. I’ve checked for the offending code in my WordPress install and it’s not there, so that’s one more thing I can rule out as the source of my latest feed problems. I didn’t see what vulnerability is being used to get this hack into web pages, so it may just be running against older, unpatched installations of WP. Make sure you’re running 2.5.1

PS. Thanks to Eric Irvin for pointing this out to me

    thanks for the heads up. Only problem I’ve had with wordpress has been Spam (using askimet so that fixes 90% of the problem).
