1.5 million WordPress software pages attacked by hackers
A security flaw in the WordPress blogging software has let hackers attack and deface tens of thousands of sites, the BBC reported.
One estimate suggests more than 1.5 million pages on blogs have been defaced, the BBC added.
The security firm that found the vulnerability said some hackers were now trying to use it to take over sites rather than just spoil pages, according to the report.
WordPress urged site owners to update software to avoid falling victim, the BBC concluded.
