WordPress plugin disusupi Trojan,Segera Reset Password anda!

Hari ini saya mendapati berita tentang kemungkinan disusupinya Plugin WordPress oleh sejumlah backdoor dan cracker yang menyasar pada tiga plugin yang cukup banyak dipakai. Plugin itu antara lain:

  • AddThis
  • WPTouch
  • W3 Total Cache

Hasil invesitigasi sementara dari tim Automattic,inc (pengelola WordPress), backdoor tersebut kemungkinan bukan berasal dari para pengembangnya. Keputusan yang diambil oleh tim juga tergolong ekstrim dan mengindikasikan ada bahaya yang serius. Untuk dapat menggunakan fasilitas forum, plugin dan lain-lain pada laman WordPress.com, WordPress.org, BuddyPress.org dan lainnya, terlebih dulu anda harus mereset password.

Berikut saya kutipkan informasinya dari laman WordPress News:

Earlier today the WordPress team noticed suspicious commits to several popular plugins (AddThis, WPtouch, and W3 Total Cache) containing cleverly disguised backdoors. We determined the commits were not from the authors, rolled them back, pushed updates to the plugins, and shut down access to the plugin repository while we looked for anything else unsavory.

We’re still investigating what happened, but as a prophylactic measure we’ve decided to force-reset all passwords on WordPress.org. To use the forums, trac, or commit to a plugin or theme, you’ll need to reset your password to a new one. (Same for bbPress.org and BuddyPress.org.)

As a user, make sure to never use the same password for two different services, and we encourage you not to reset your password to be the same as your old one.

Second, if you use AddThis, WPtouch, or W3 Total Cache and there’s a possibility you could have updated in the past day, make sure to visit your updates page and upgrade each to the latest version.
