Got this from ZDNET yesterday.

Since May, security company Sucuri has found serious security holes in WordPress plugins WPTouch (5,670,626 downloads), Disqus (1,400,003 downloads), All In One SEO Pack (19,152,355 downloads), and MailPoet Newsletters (1,894,474 downloads).

All vulnerabilities have been patched in new versions of each plugin. The various vulns can allow an attacker to use your website for phishing lures, to send SPAM, to make you an unwitting malware host, infect other sites (on a shared server), and more.
