Security experts warn of attack on word press blogging application

Posted: Updated:

Security experts are now warning of a huge attack underway on the word press blogging application.

They say someone is using a "bot-net" of infected computers around 90,000 strong in their attacks.

Their goal looks to be the takeover of servers dedicated to word press blogs.

Experts believe the attackers are trying to add the servers to their bot-nets for future attacks.

These servers are much faster than the average computer and could make the damaging power of new attacks extremely strong.
