Once again a blogger who had not updated his wordpress blog, which subsequently got hacked was removed from the Google index because the blogger was not aware of the data that had been placed on his website because of the WordPress vulnerability.

I keep hearing from a lot of people that are being affected by security issues within wordpress. This is a real problem for WordPress and they are going to have to step up their game to prevent peoples websites from being compromised because of poor code.

By looking at the comments on the post itself it seems a lot of people are running into these issues.. Sad state of affairs for WordPress bloggers goes to show you that you get what you pay for. Hacked WordPress Blog
