Important: WordPress Security Exploit
Published: 8th Sep 2009 in News
This is very important information for anyone using WordPress for their website or blog.
It has come to our attention that there is a new security exploit attacking WordPress sites using old versions (i.e. versions before 2.8.4).
This new exploit seems to create a ‘fake’ administrator (which you cannot see) within WordPress which may change URLs or abuse other parts of your site. Please see the following links for reference:
