In this week’s Websense Security Labs Video, Chris Astacio discusses a mass injection attack that is compromising a wide swath of WordPress sites through a vulnerability in TimThumb.php, a common module used in many WordPress themes.

That post features a link to the patched version of TimThumb that users can download to remove this vulnerability.
