I see that WP by default now is “spitting” out it’s version number.
Normally this is the first thing an attacker look for to run known exploits of the system.
A common known rule is to NOT give the visitor any info about running version of the script.
<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.8.4" />
Any good reason for sending this to a potential “spambot”?
