WordPress plugin update leads to thousands of sites exposing users to adware
Something to be aware of.
Paul Bischoff, security and privacy advocate for Comparitech.com is warning website owners who use the Simple Share Buttons plugin for WordPress that clicking to “accept” the terms and conditions of the latest update could allow their websites to subject users to threats.
With over 100,000 active installs according to WordPress.org, even if only a small amount of these users hit the accept button to make the message disappear, it would lead thousands of websites exposing visitors to adware and other threats.
