Security issues with WordPress 2.7.1 “Tandbleking” ?
Techbuzz currently runs on wordpress 2.7.1 . When I was trying to add a new widget to the sidebar, I noticed something strange :
A link to a swedish site ?? I have never linked to someone who I don’t know and I think twice before linking back to a site totaly out of scope of my website. This definitely is a security leak in wordpress, though I haven’t yet gotten to the bottom of this.
Here are some shocking facts about this site.
1> This site was registered about 2 months ago, that is in December 2008.
2> The site has more than 600 incoming links !!
3> The particular page, to which my site was linking has in excess of 1800 links !! Mostly from WordPress blogs …
I suggest those on WP 2.7.1 to have a look at their widgets ..
