WordPress Page is Loading… an Exploit

WordPress.org is being targeted once again, and although this time there isn’t much sneaky sophistication, the infection is still prevalent enough for Internet users to be wary.

Spam appears to be the driver of these campaigns. Various websites have already been identified to be redirecting to Blackhole exploit kit. Compromised websites would render any of the following pages upon visit:

tuit html

quick html

opek html

irta html

company html

aic html

Simple and unsuspecting… but really, in an age in which beautifully crafted websites are the norm, these fakes are just too plain to be the real deal…

And indeed they aren’t…

Browsing Protection Result

Currently, these sites redirect to the following domains that host Blackhole exploit kit:

  •  georgekinsman.net
  •  icemed.net
  •  mynourigen.net
  •  synergyledlighting.net
  •  themeparkoupons.net

Be wary of where you’re clicking, folks. Safe browsing everyone!
