What about this?
Seems that story has been buried on digg... The macapper post I linked suggests that it is a WP problem and that they would report it. Having just spent two hours looking for holes in my WP installs, I'd be rather annoyed if this was nothing more than a lame PR stunt by a bunch of 14 year olds.
I don't know... just found it interesting.
On the other hand - having any file (including .htaccess) world writable is not a good thing, I agree.
It appears that glennwolsey, macapper, applematters were all part of an elaborate fraud.
Perhaps I'll find this funny at some point... but for the moment I'm rather annoyed that I wasted time looking for holes that weren't there.
