This is more of a public service announcement than anything else, as Lorelle already mentioned it in her fabulous “WordPress Wednesdays” three days ago.  But in case you weren’t aware, had forgotten, or didn’t read it (shame on you if you didn’t! :), it bears repeating: If you’re using WordPress 2.1.1 please upgrade to WordPress 2.1.2!

The details can be found over at the official WordPress site, but WP 2.1.1 has a piece of code that may have been inserted by a cracker who gained user-level access to the WordPress.org servers.  The hack allows WP 2.1.1 to be exploited in some fairly nasty ways.  Don’t be a victim — upgrade to WP 2.1.2 today!
