More than 2,000 WordPress websites are infected with a keylogger

Malicious script logs passwords and just about anything else admins or
visitors type.

More than 2,000 websites running the open source WordPress content
management system are infected with malware, researchers warned late
last week. The malware in question logs passwords and just about
anything else an administrator or visitor types.

The keylogger is part of a malicious package that also installs an
in-browser cryptocurrency miner that's surreptitiously run on the
computers of people visiting the infected sites. Data provided by
website search service PublicWWW showed that, as of Monday afternoon,
the package was running on 2,092 sites.
