Yet another WordPress security problem, and this one’s a doozy. I’m happy that they’re keeping people informed, but dang, this software takes waaaay too much of my time to maintain. What Ben said.

Yowza! The friend at work who cautioned me against updating WordPress gets kudos — but I fear that very soon I’ll be forced to upgrade (due to the DreamHost php upgrade; I’m still waiting for my preview-comments functionality to snap). As of today, I’m still at 2.0.6.
Does it make you wince to read, at the bottom of your blog, this text:
Not even “Jim Carson’s weblog”, but Jim Carson himself. 😉
Grrr…. I winced. In my haste to patch this before I checked out of my hotel, I overwrite my default templates, including the footer.
I set my web server back to PHP4 because I am hosting my MediaWiki on another domain (running PHP5). I hope this will give me enough time to investigate alternatives. There are some things I really like about it, but the security and random PHP flakiness are serious enough to move off.
Jim Carson is powered by Clif Bars, chocolate and Mexican food.
I’m not having any problems, but then again I haven’t updated in a while, and I’m not running the Tsunami 5000 comment spamulator. It helps that I run a fairly low web-profile, and only have 3 regular readers.
