Netcraft: WordPress Distribution Compromised, Update Released
“A recent distribution of the popular blogging software WordPress was compromised during a server intrusion, the development team said late Friday. All WordPress users who have downloaded and installed version 2.1.1 are urged to immediately upgrade to version 2.1.2. Earlier versions of WordPress are not affected.”
Ouch! Get patching. I had downloaded but not yet upgraded. There’s a patch to avoid.
