Web Publishing for All! Introducing Community Translator Tools | Blogs | WordPress | Blogging

Web Publishing for All! Introducing Community Translator Tools | Blogs | WordPress | Blogging | WordPress and Annotum for Education, Science,Journal Publishing | Scoop.it
We're excited to announce new tools that help make WordPress even more accessible to people around the globe.


Roughly half of the content and traffic on the internet is in English1, yet English is the mother tongue of only about a quarter of internet users2, and less than 5% of the world’s population.3 We believe that WordPress.com should be for everyone, not just English speakers — it’s why we already serve WordPress in 131 languages — but we want to make it even more accessible.4

To keep so many languages up to date we need to make it radically easier for non-English speaking communities to help with translation. We’re proud to announce our latest step in that direction: the Community Translator.

Popular WordPress plugins found vulnerable to XSS attacks | UPDATE asap!!!

Popular WordPress plugins found vulnerable to XSS attacks | UPDATE asap!!! | WordPress and Annotum for Education, Science,Journal Publishing | Scoop.it

Vulnerable websites can be exploited via XSS to steal user accounts, change settings or phish passwords from unsuspecting users.

In fact, XSS flaws are one of the most commonly encountered security flaws found on websites.


Patching is obviously sensible and should be undertaken at the earliest opportunity, but never forget that additional layers of protection can go beyond patches – and perhaps be proactive in defending your systems from abuse during the time when no official fixes are available.

WordPress plugin used by millions sports critical site-hijacking flaw | CyberSecurity | Blogging

WordPress plugin used by millions sports critical site-hijacking flaw | CyberSecurity | Blogging | WordPress and Annotum for Education, Science,Journal Publishing | Scoop.it

Another popular Yoast Wordpress plugin has been found sporting a critical vulnerability that can be exploited by attackers to take over control of the site.

A week ago it was the WordPress SEO plugin, which is actively used on more than a million of WP sites. This time it's the company's Google Analytics plugin, which has apparently been downloaded around 7 million times.

According to the researcher who discovered the issue, Jouko Pynnönen of Finland-based Klikki Oy, the vulnerability "allows an unauthenticated attacker to store arbitrary HTML, including JavaScript, in the WordPress administrator’s Dashboard on the target system. The JavaScript will be triggered when an administrator views the plug-in’s settings panel. No further user interaction is required."

Over 1 million WordPress websites at risk from SQL injection | CyberSecurity | WordPress and Annotum for Education, Science,Journal Publishing | Scoop.it
A critical security flaw in a plugin called WP-Slimstat is to blame.


Over one million websites running the WordPress content management system are potentially at risk of being hijacked due to a critical vulnerability exposed in the WP-Slimstat plugin.

On Tuesday, a security advisory posted by researcher Marc-Alexandre Montpas from security firm Sucuri said the "very high risk" vulnerability found in versions of WP-Slimstat 3.9.5 and lower could lead to cyberattackers being able to break the plugin's "secret" key, perform an SQL injection and take over a target website.

Hackers turn 162,000 WordPress sites into DDoS attack tools

Hackers turn 162,000 WordPress sites into DDoS attack tools | WordPress and Annotum for Education, Science,Journal Publishing | Scoop.it
Legitimate sites forced to aid criminals' illicit botnet operations


Hackers have hijacked more than 162,000 legitimate WordPress sites, connecting them to a criminal botnet and forcing them to mount distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, according to security firm Sucuri.


Sucuri CTO Daniel Cid said the company uncovered the botnet when analysing an attack targeting one of its customers. Cid said Sucuri managed to trace the source of the attack to legitimate WordPress sites.

"The most interesting part is that all the requests were coming from valid and legitimate WordPress sites. Yes, other WordPress sites were sending random requests at a very large scale and bringing the site down," read the blog.
