Critical WordPress plugin bug allows hackers to wipe thousands of websites

A serious WordPress plugin vulnerability could allow hackers to wipe information from thousands of sites, according to a report released by WebARX.

The affected plugin is the ThemeGrill Demo Importer, which is included with commercial themes from website development company ThemeGrill.

The plugin currently has over 200,000 active installations and lets users import demo content, widgets, and theme settings to preview examples of what their web page will look like.
