A bit of Russian malware (known as “SoakSoak”) is infecting self-hosted WordPress websites through a vulnerability in a plug-in called Slider Revolution. To make things worse, anyone who visits one of these sites will have their computer infected with malware.

Read more about the infection on Gizmodo, and be safe. If you host your own WordPress-powered blog/website, you might want to stop using the Slider Revolution plug-in. It also wouldn’t hurt to see if your site is infected by checking here.
