Update your WordPress website now or risk defacement

Ever since the discovery of a vulnerability in WordPress software early this month that allows an unauthenticated user to modify the content of any post or page within a WordPress site, there has been a steady rise in mass website defacement across WordPress sites.

Although the flaw has been fixed and a new version of the software release – WordPress 4.7.2, however most sites are yet to apply the update thereby opening them up for attacks. Over 1.5 million WordPress websites have been defaced in the last few days.
