A zero-day vulnerability was recently discovered in a popular WordPress plugin and now cybercriminals exploiting the flaw have begun to protect the sites they’ve compromised from attacks launched by other threat actors.

The security flaw was first discovered by the security firm Defiant who recorded attacks on over 1.7m WordPress sites that had vulnerable versions of the File Manager plugin installed. However, in the past week, the number of sites attacked has increased to over 2.6m.
