A DoS flaw found in open source CMS WordPress is so simple anyone could use it. Ilia Kolochenko, CEO at web security company High-Tech Bridge commented below.
Ilia Kolochenko, CEO at High-Tech Bridge:
“Compared to many other WordPress vulnerabilities that allow attackers to take full control of the vulnerable website and even of the web server, this flaw is of a minor importance. I don’t think professional cybercriminals will leverage it in their hacking campaigns in the near future. Exploitation for “fun” is, however, foreseeable but won’t have major consequences compared to other incidents.”
