I normally don't broadcast WordPress news (since you already have this in your dashboard) but in case you haven't logged in in a while you might not have noticed that WordPress 2.1.2 has been released.

For those running WordPress 2.1.1, this is an urgent upgrade available due to a critical security flaw. Overwrite your old WP files as soon as possible. The issue looks serious enough as a cracker had gained access to one of the WordPress servers and had modified some files to include the security exploit code.

  1. Not just for recent upgraders either, it seems that there is an unrelated security hole in WP which this upgrade fixes.
