WordPress 2.1.1 Dangerous

I’m a user of WordPress on a couple of my sites, including On The Air. So that’s why this notice caught my attention: WordPress 2.1.1 Dangerous, Upgrade to 2.1.2. Dangerous? How could a blogging tool be dangerous? It turns out someone hacked into their servers and inserted a security exploit right into the code for WordPress, the official code that everyone was downloading from the official site. Kind of a nasty situation, one that could happen to anyone, and luckily they noticed it and pulled the code down quickly.

WordPress 2.1.1 was only out for about a week, and the exploit was in it less than that. So probably not a lot of people had gotten around to downloading it. But if you did, chuck it out and download 2.1.2 right away.

Amazing Race All-Stars Episode 2 Recap

My latest recap of The Amazing Race is now up both at and my new blog, On The Air.

So they’re giving their exit interviews, and Drew is just kind of staring into space, with this croaky voice, and when you look into his eyes it’s like he’s not even there. Like he’s a stroke patient, or something. It’s so disappointing, after waiting for five years for there to be an All-Stars season so these guys could come back, to see them suck this hard and be shells of their former selves.

Go read it all.
