Most of you have been in the sun today. I, on the other hand, have developed and implemented a solution for Antispam Bee which ensures that the exploitation of the recently published vulnerability in caching plugins W3 Total Cache and WP Super Cache in WordPress comments is detected and suppressed by Antispam Bee.
Although most bloggers have updated the caching plugins mentioned above and the danger seems to be over. But the wave of comments that are now trying to actively exploit the gap is only just beginning.
A case for Antispam Bee, which detects the prominent malware code in the comment and marks it as spam. The solution also minimizes the risk in WordPress, if someone hasn’t noticed security holes and hasn’t updated the mentioned plugins.
The update for Antispam Bee is online and available for update in the WordPress backend.
