Fake antivirus is by no means a recent phenomenon. In fact, it has been around for ages, with the first documented instance of fake antivirus reportedly dating back to 1989. Of course, it has become much more widespread over the past few years.

I wonder how many times are we going to read the exact same article. I remember reading the exact same thing 4 years ago (granted, without the 30,000 Wordpress websites part, that is the only bit of news here).

30,000 is a scary number, especially if websites that have a lot of views ended up being in there somewhere. Wordpress do roll out updates to their platform here and there (not sure how frequent that is), but I guess it's still not enough.
