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:

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.”
