Site Hijacked For Spamming (Resolved)

By Lawrence

Thanks to a loophole in WordPress, our site was hijacked earlier today for spamming email.

Client information was not compromise in any way as we have done security measures to ensure the safety of the data.

We acted fast and patched the problem but it still rendered the website slow and unresponsive for about 6 hours until 10:30 am.

This weekend we have to do a complete backup and checking of the website to ensure it will not be affected again.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
