The Display Widgets plugin infects thousands of WordPress Who is behind this plugin?

In the latest WordPress News in Spanish program, we told you about the Display Widgets plugin vulnerability, used in more than 200,000 installations. This plugin, already withdrawn from the official WordPress repository, allowed its supposed owner (who was not the original developer) to insert spam code in the WordPress users, in such a way that it was a back door without the owner of the website noticing .

The result was that it included spam links in search engine search results. This is not the first time it has happened, it happened last year with the 404 to 301 plugin, but according to the research carried out by Mark Maunder, CEO of Wordfence, it seems that it is the same person who is behind these practices.

Today, Thursday, September 14, at 7:00 p.m. in Spain, live and direct, with Antonio Postigo @hoystreaming and Pedro Santos @hostfusion, we will tell you what is happening, who is the person behind these operations and How he has become a millionaire with these fraudulent practices, using the good faith of the plugin developers, the WordPress repository and the users of these plugins.

We will review the most important plugins that have been updated this week, so that you are up to date.
