WordPress, ransomware, etc.

Interesting new item making the rounds: somebody’s been hacking WordPress sites. Ars Technica says:

It’s still not clear how, but a disproportionately large number of websites that run on the WordPress content management system are being hacked to deliver crypto ransomware and other malicious software to unwitting end users.

Well, that’s awkward. The dusty & neglected Daybook has been running WordPress since mid-2009; am I now serving “crypto ransomware” to all (three of) my readers? (I logged in on the server just now, and poked around a bit. No signs of unusual activity.)

I use WordPress, but I don’t like it all that much. I’m not even sure keeping the Daybook online is such a good idea any more. Perhaps it’s time to pull the plug.
