Is your WordPress Blog been hack? Prevent it now.

I have seen a number of the WordPress Blogs installed on our servers, being hack and used to send our massive amount of spam email.

Investigating this showed the blog has been hacked into.

This was caused because the WordPress was running a old version.

So update your WordPress ASAP.

It’s easy to do.  Login to your WordPress.  Click the Update link on the left panel and then the UpDate to current version.  Don’t do the Re-install unless you really know what you are doing.

Also update all your Plug-in  as well.

Check for updates at least weekly.
