WordPress Update, a new security blog and love for Akismet

BlogSecurity is a new blog that focuses on security, primarily orientated around the popular WordPress blogging platform (which also powers this blog). One of their first posts was rather disturbing – of 50 WordPress blogs they reviewed, 49 weren’t running the latest version of the software and were susceptible to potentially known attacks.

As a result, I’ve updated Modhul.com to the latest version of WordPress (version 2.2) and I would recommend all maintainers of WordPress upgrade their sites too.

On a similar blog related note, I want to offer lots of beer to the developers of the Akismet spam plugin for WordPress – in the last two weeks, its captured 1236 spam comments – fantastic!
