WordPress.com cracked

See here:


If I had a hosted blog there, I would now change my password. Full root access is a serious thing.

As far as I understand it, the incident only affected wordpress.com where they host their blogs. The WordPress software itself (hosted on wordpress.org) shouldn't be affected but as a precaution, you may refuse from automatically update WordPress and/or plugins until more information about the incident becomes available.

I closed down this blog network to new blogs because some Russian found a hole in the script, he had injected the entire database with Viagra redirection links, so much that it would not serve blog pages any longer, the only way I could pull it back up was to replace the DB with a very old backup, then it started serving blogs again.
