Important security announcement for WordPress users who have updated to version 2.1.1: the download file for 2.1.1 was apparently cracked to include a security exploit. If your WordPress site is running 2.1.1 and you obtained that version from any source other than the official subversion repository (using the svn command and a URL at svn.automattic.com), you apparently need to upgrade to 2.1.2 NOW. Follow the link for details.

Already done. Taking my laptop to the hockey game to double-check any installs I’ve missed. 🙂
Thank you for the warning, I almost upgraded to 2.1.1 myself…
