    I just found early this week there was a user I didn't created, named Brad... and without any email/name/post and he was administrator. I never received any email notification about the creation of this user. And nobody is suppose to be able to register, since registration are close. I was on WP 3.1.2 when it arrived, since then I deleted him and upgrade to 3.2.1, and guess what... this morning Brad was back. I deleted him again.

    But I'll like to know why and how can I prevent him again.
    sorry for my english, I speak french.

    I think it was Cforms.
    I deleted it, I'll see if the user come back.

    Cforms is a contact form plugin, with too many options and some security issues. I stop using it, I prefer "contact form 7".
    I also install "WP-Activity" and "WP Security Scan" I also ban all the china ip range :)
