Surprise WordPress Upgrade

We received a note from Technorati today about a serious security problem with old versions of WordPress, including the version we were running, that is now being exploited on a widespread scale. We’ve thus hastily upgraded to WordPress 2.5. That did cause a brief bit of disruption to the “News & Announcements” portion of our member site, which is now resolved.

If you want to run WordPress, you too may want to check whether you’re running the most current version with the latest patches. Better safe than sorry!
