[resolved] Why can't I post the word "according"? (9 posts)

    when I try to post a story with the word "according," WP says I don't have permission to access wp-admin/post.php

    I'm still running 1.2.2

    when I take out the word out it posts fine.

    It wont matter that you cannot post that word when your blog is exploited. ANY advice on that is negligent if it consists of anything other than "it's time for an upgrade".

    so you're saying my blog is exploited. Will the upgrade clear up the exploit? How could that have been done?

  4. I don't think that you blog has been exploited, but I recommend that you upgrade to v1.5.2 ASAP, as v1.2.2 is vulnerable to a few security exploits. It as possible that the upgrade will fix your problem as well. Follow these instructions:

    "so you're saying my blog is exploited."

    Nope, Whoami is merely saying that you're vulnerable i.e. your front door is open but no-one has walked in yet.

    I found out that the problem was mod_security rules on the server. A double 'cc' was causing the trouble. The problem has now been resolved.

    I still plan to do the upgrade though. Thank you for your help.
