Compromised WordPress sites are being targeted in a Cryptocurrency mining scheme

I run Wordfence on all of my WordPress installations. There are free and pro versions. A recent Wordfence email highlighted an attack on WordPress sites. The hacked sites are used to do two things: (1) Attack other sites and (2) Mine Cryptocurrency. 

If the site owner doesn’t take immediate action to remedy the situation, they will find their sites blacklisted.

For more details, read the Wordfence blog post.
