Wordpress Attacks Reported On Shared Host

Just a heads up if you are running Wordpress on a shared hosting account such as Hostgator. There are starting to be several reports that Wordpress sites on shared hosting accounts are under attack. You can read much more on this here and there is even a PHP upload clean up fix should you get infected. Although I have yet to hear Hostgator named specifically, the initial reports today were restricted to Dreamhost, GoDaddy, Bluehost, Media temple and other places with the common theme being shared hosting platforms. This has even been reported on sites using the latest 2.9.2 version of Wordpress.

I am running the newest version of WP on Go-daddy and was infected. I ran the fix in the post and cleared it. I have known better for quite a while to move those sites over to a more suitable host, but have just put it off. Thanks for the heads up as I found your post on Twitter.
