WordPress is the world’s most popular content management platform, and its widespread popularity also means that it gets a lot of hacking attempts.

According to reports, more than 100,000 websites based on the WordPress platform have been infected with mysterious malware, which will turn those websites into platforms with the ability to attack and hack their visitors. Because of this, Google has monitored more than 11,000 domains and prevented them from appearing in the initial search results.

It is suspected that this may be due to a weakness or a loophole in some WordPress plugins, particularly Slider Revolution, and since then the developer has made several attempts to remedy this problem.

“Some site owners haven’t found out they’re suffering from this,” wrote security company Sucuri, which helps site operators secure their devices.
