I found out about this pretty quick on Reddit then on Twitter. Basically a company Pipdig who makes various WordPress plugins, themes, and who knows what else got into some deep trouble by doing some shady things allegedly. Putting malicious code into their own products to supposedly target unauthorized users or sellers was just not the way to handle things, if that’s even true. I never used their stuff but it appears many fashion bloggers use their products for WordPress sites.
After the news came out the company apparently started cleaning up their tracks, but many WordPress people had already saved all the info before going public. Read more about this on WPTavern a great WordPress blog.
