    Hey everyone,

    I had a nasty problem this morning regarding a hacker taking control of my WP blog. Made a post about it:

    Maybe this can generate some discussion here about why or how it happened, plus ways to prevent it.

    Thanks! I might have to check that out.

    Additionally, I sent a note to the security folks at WordPress. If anything, it's just a heads up. My thinking is that this is a problem that was solved with 2.0.4. The fact that I hadn't upgraded until after the hack might be the answer.

    If anything happens after you upgrade to the latest version, please let us know.
