WordPress Security Issues

A friend recently brought to my attention that some of my recent posts contained some odd links to casino sites and other such random spam. 7 card stud strategiesfree online video pokerfree texas holdem poker play,free texas holdem poker,free online texas holdem pokerfree online multiplayer pokerplay texas holdem online free,online texas holdem,texas holdem online gameonline betting pokerpoker siteinternet poker,card game internet poker,bonus internet pokerpoker freefree internet pokercrazy game of pokerpoker gambling gameonline poker schoolfree poker softwareplay video pokeronline poker for fungambling pokerstrip poker gameonline poker bonusvideo poker bettingbest airline miles credit cardcard credit interest lowest ukcredit card debt consolidation loancard consolidation credit debt unsecuredaccount best buy card credit,best buy card com credit,best buy credit cardcard credit debt free helpbank card credit georgia monogramuk credit card companycard company credit uk? ?,credit card company,card company consolidation credit xxasdfinstant approval credit card,approval business card credit instant,approval card credit instant offercard credit mutual providian washingtonapplication canada card creditcredit card processing machine,card credit machine processingcard comparison consolidate credit debtchase credit card servicesmbna america credit cardsears credit card paymentcard credit debt negotiation settlement? ?,credit card debt negotiation,card credit debt negotiationcard credit credit free no online report,card credit credit free online report,free online credit cardsetup online credit card processinginstant online credit card applicationcredit card debt elimination,total credit card debt elimination,mbna credit card debt eliminationapplication canadian card credit visa,application card credit online visa,visa credit card applicationbank card credit,first premier bank platinum credit card,associate bank credit cardcard credit payment searsdirect merchant credit cardbank credit card application,application bank card credit orchard? ?,citi bank credit card application0 balance card credit transfercredit card debt relief,card credit debt debt relief stop,credit card debt relief nonprofitcard consolidation credit debt service After further investigation I found a total of 5 posts affected and I’m confident it was due to the recently patched security issue found in WordPress. More info can be found over on their blog. I suppose that will teach me for letting the version slide for a little while without upgrade. I’m also glad that I only had 80 some posts to look through, it certainly could have been much worse…

Anyway, if you run a WordPress blog, make sure to upgrade ASAP.
