Softinite website under attack

By Posted in - Blog on May 5th, 2016 0 Comments

Our website appears to have been the victim of an attack.

At first, it was difficult to assess what was happening.

The box on which it has been running kept going down.

It seemed like a problem with the hosting provider.

Installing ‘Wordfence’ helped, as it detected some malicious files.

It seems that the entry point for the hacker(s) was an old version of the ‘Contact Form’ plugin.

After some cleanup, things appear to have gotten back to normal.

The activity footprint suggests that the main goal was to use our server for sending spam.
