So yeah, my wordpress site got hacked and spammed. I took some time to update to 2.3
I still don’t like how annoying web apps are to update in general, it always feels a lot more painful than it should be. At the top of the list of annoyances is figuring out what the version of WordPress is I’m installing. The tarball is latest.tar.gz, the readme.html says 2.3, and only after installing it do I know that it’s 2.3.1
Maybe I’m too hung up on releases.
Anyway, apologies for the planet spamming. If you have any more suggestions for securing my wordpress install, let me know.
