Recent plugin bug leads to millions of WordPress sites being probed and attacked

The plugin, which was installed on more than 700,000 sites, allowed the attacker to take over the victim’s site by uploading a web shell disguised inside an image file on the victim’s server. It is unclear how the zero-day vulnerability was discovered by hackers, however the File Manager developers responded quickly, creating and releasing a patch for the zero-day to combat the attacks.
