More than 100,000 Wordpress websites have conscripted into a botnet which forces them them to inadvertently launch DDoS attacks.
Security firm Sucuri found the botnet when analysing an attack targeting one of its customers and traced the source of the attack to legitimate WordPress sites.
Public scripts can be just as damaging.
If you're too stupid to keep your site updated, then you lose your license and the site goes offline.
