The attack is made possible due to insufficient filtering of variables in the HTTP request (the field HTTP_USER_AGENT, HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR, REMOTE_ADDR) and their subsequent use in the session object, and query a database.

The problem was identified in February and has already been fixed in the update SUPEE-5344, while for non-disclosure agreement about the vulnerability made public only now.

The vulnerability is related to the misuse of the developers of plugins and features add_query_arg remove_query_arg, which were not well documented in the documentation Wordpress, plugin developers that introduced misleading and resulted in the feasibility of the attack.

Specialists of the company Sucuri were tested about 300 of the most popular plugins Wordpress, many of them are affected, it was confirmed. We will publish the list below. Developers data plug-ins already released an update covering the vulnerability. However, we want to note that this list is not complete, it is clear that much more vulnerable plug-ins, just as long as they might, no one tested.

The fact that the standard Joomla component updates using scripts of Akeeba. And Akeeba Joomla and released their updates, covering this vulnerability, but they did not consider it a critical vulnerability, and so many people do not pay much attention to it.

Back in September 2014 published a critical vulnerability in the popular plugins for Wordpress Slider Revolution, but to this day we meet a lot of sites exposed the vulnerability.

With these approaches, an attacker can easily gain control over your site. Vulnerability affects all versions of the plug-in to version 4.1.4.

In particular, the attacker gains access to the private key, user name and password and all content to be transmitted in encrypted form. When this leaves no traces of penetration into the system.

Of such an attack, we have already written, but in recent days they have intensified with incredible force. The essence of the attack is that the bots of passwords to the admin panel of the website. It is dangerous not only because the password sooner or later they still can pick up, but the fact that it was created a pretty decent load on the server.

Since the attacks in recent days have purchased just incredible strength, the server hosts many simply can not withstand such loads exorbitant. Hosters naturally try to cope with this scourge, but it is they do not always work, as the number of bots is huge and firewalls can not cope with so many locks. Therefore, some of them, as a temporary solution to block requests for files wp-login.php to wordpress and administrator / index.php for Joomla.
