For those WordPress users out there who did not notice this in their dashboards, holy crap, dude, it’s time to upgrade! Hackers got a hold of a WP server and did nasty things:
Long story short: If you downloaded WordPress 2.1.1 within the past 3-4 days, your files may include a security exploit that was added by a cracker, and you should upgrade all of your files to 2.1.2 immediately.
Longer explanation: This morning we received a note to our security mailing address about unusual and highly exploitable code in WordPress. The issue was investigated, and it appeared that the 2.1.1 download had been modified from its original code. We took the website down immediately to investigate what happened.
Pass this on to whom soever might be using the 2.1.1 version of WordPress, so they know.
