Movable Spam

If you have a Movable Type blog (even one you don’t use), it needs to be patched. It seems that there’s a file in there, mt-send-entry.cgi, that can be used by spammers as an open relay. Whoopsie! Best thing is to just delete the file. It’s supposed to be used to let readers “E-mail this page to a friend”, and how many people use that functionality on their blog? Shred it.

More. More. More.
