    Hello the community

    Today was a new administrator on my site, just a matter with him, he came from himself and I didn't get a mail to advertise me.
    Could be it is the same security bug like with the 2.8 (not really beacause this one was to see by users) ? Don't know.

    I use wp 3.0.1 multisite with Buddypress
    This guy was registred on my main site as administrator, under the name Benjamin Collins.

    The site is : http://www.tby-liber.com (french)

    I deleted his account but I think it's just good for a short time. Can somebody help ?

    I would update Buddypress to the 1.2.6. Could be the matter.

    Know somebody about this ? Can somebody help me ?

    I forgot, I'm a story teller and all the sites are my own sites where I write my stuff. On http://www.tby-liber.com/blogfr/ can you find some stories in english.

  3. There are no known bugs/hacks with 3.0.1 but that doesn't mean it's impossible.

    Change your passwords for your WP site, however. Go through all the accounts and make sure no one else has admin access. If it happens again review this: http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_My_site_was_hacked
