Mysterious Malware Is Infecting 100k Wordpress Sites

It might be a good idea to avoid any Wordpress sites you normally visit until they get this whole malware thing worked out.

Google has already blocked 11,000 domains to try to curb the damage. According to security firm Sucuri, the malware uses a vulnerability in a slideshow plug-in called Slider Revolution. The Slider Revolution team has known about the vulnerability since September, but it looks like they failed to fix it before the security hole got crammed with steaming hot malware.
