WordPress versions prior to 4.7.5 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities. A remote attacker could exploit some of these vulnerabilities to take control of an affected website.
Users and administrators are encouraged to review the WordPress Security Release and upgrade to WordPress 4.7.5.
Earlier this year, two separate security risks were brought to light: CVE-2017-0144, a vulnerability in the SMB Server that could allow remote code execution that was fixed in March, and WannaCry/Wcry, a relatively new ransomware family that spread via Dropbox URLs in late April. These two threats have now been combined, resulting in one of the most serious ransomware attacks to hit users across the globe.
On May 12, 2017 a new strain of the Ransom.CryptXXX (WannaCry) strain of ransomware began spreading widely impacting a large number of organizations, particularly in Europe.
Wcry is demanding a ransom of $300 to $600 in Bitcoin to be paid by May 15, or, in the event that deadline is missed, a higher fee by May 19. The messages left on the screen say files will remain encrypted. It’s not yet clear if there are flaws in the encryption scheme that might allow the victims to restore the files without paying the ransom.
