    Don't know if this is a vulnerability in WordPress, or if it's some bug in the "wp-useronline" plugin, but I've just looked at the users-online and seen a member called "xanax" looking at my archives!

    I only have one member, that's me, and was wondering if I should 'panic' or not over this.

    No, the ability is disabled.

    If I'm not mistaken, wp-useronline will match a comment against an ip address. Somebody named "xanax" must have commented in the past and now shows as browsing through your archives.
