Over 100 000 WordPress sites affected December 16, 2014

Starting last Sunday night, many WordPress site owners were unpleasantly surprised to see.

Wordpress affected by malware

As reported by sucuri.net

There seems to be correlations between WordPress sites and plug-ins that have not been updated.

WordPress sites that have been maintained, along with their plug-ins have not been affected.

If you have been affected there is a fix the files that were affected  must be replaced.

wp-includes/template-loader.php

wp-includes/js/swfobject.js

These files contain malicious coding.

You should then update all plug-ins and ensure your WordPress is running the latest version which is currently 4.01

If you are unsure of how to do this have a professional do it for you.
