    checked the meta generator was wordpress 3.2.1
    googled it and found this --> [link removed]
    an XSS attack, is this true?

    Sites get hacked via other points of entry on their servers all of the time. There are no known security issues in WordPress 3.2.1

    And don't post links to hack codes, fer pete's sake! If you think you have uncovered a genuine security issue, please email security@wordpress.org

    I asked one of the core devs to have a look at the script - just in case - and it seems to have been a false alarm. :-)
