BlogPress SEO: A Year Later

A year ago, I published my discovery of a backdoor within the BlogPress SEO plugin. The only reason I looked at the plugin was author tried to get me to review it. Little did he know I’d actually look at the code before installing it.

Since that time, the plugin received a ton of bad publicity, the author lashed out against Joost de Valk, and now, a year later, it appears the saga ends. The domain name expired back in October, and no one has renewed it yet. My only hope is the people behind BlogPress SEO didn’t move on to using a different name for the same plugin.
