I actually found this article from the Hacker News, and decided to share it. This site is about game hacking, guides, and other tricks of futzing with games. It’s never been about Account Hacking, but that doesn’t mean that other hacks don’t interest me, and possibly you as well.
So as I got my daily update, and read about how 60k wordpress sites were hacked, I immediately wanted to read about the vulnerability which was causing some grief around the world… as it turns out, no one is exactly sure how it happened. However if you search google with this term, site:wordpress.com “Im getting paid! then you will find how many the count is up to now.
There has been no official word on it from wordpress.com as of yet, but if you do own a wordpress.com blog, then it might be time to go ahead and check on it, to see if you have been hacked or not. It could be something as complex as a server being hacked, SQL injection, or even some something simple like brute forcing the password. If it’s something simple like the brute forcing of passwords, then we highly suggest using a more secure password. PCTools offers a password generator, as does KeyPass and LastPass (recommended). If it’s something else, then it’s beyond your control… but using a password manager with a generator, will help you keep not only your website safe, but also your game safe, and that is well worth a little inconvenience.
