    WordPress.org Hacked - Some Plugins Compromised

    It looks like WordPress.org was hacked and backdoors were added to some plugins.

    Malicious software downloads invade WordPress • The Register

    They found malicious code in AddThis, WPtouch and W3 Total Cache.

    If you recently updated these plugins, you will need to reinstall them with new copies.
