LexBlog sites safe from latest reported malware attack

A few news outlets reported yesterday and today that Russian malware was discovered on 100,000+ WordPress sites via a public, shared WordPress plugin, Slider Revolution. This malware is causing sites to become “attack platforms that target their visitors.”

LexBlog WordPress sites are not affected. We do not use the infected third-party plugin on any of our custom WordPress installations.

Because of our vetted technology processes at LexBlog, we rarely employ third-party plugins to achieve functionality and other technology goals. Instead, if/when a plugin is necessary, we build the plugin in-house to ensure a stable and more secure platform for you.

Additionally, we perform continuous security audits and proactively update our sites to further mitigate security risks.

As always, if you have any questions about your site post here or in our community!
