Securing Your Blog, or Else...

Deep Jive Interests: TailRank Exposes Massive Number Of Blogs Hacked -- turns out all the latest spam sites are legitimate but hacked WordPress sites. I have also experienced a surge of trackback spams over the last couple of days, from hacked WordPress sites with their wp-content populated with static spammy content. WordPress 2.3.3 wasn't even safe, although it was only superceded a few days earlier when 2.5 came out. And people are still discussing how much they hated WordPress 2.5 because of its new dashboard?! Maybe we should go back to writing static HTML files.
