Default For those with Wordpress blogs...important security update

WordPress 2.3.3 is an urgent security release. If you have registration enabled a flaw was found in the XML-RPC implementation such that a specially crafted request would allow a user to edit posts of other users on that blog. In addition to fixing this security flaw, 2.3.3 fixes a few minor bugs. If you are interested only in the security fix, download the fixed version of xmlrpc.php and copy it over your existing xmlrpc.php.

There are 3 options available; 3 Step upgrade, Detailed upgrade, and a file replacement upgrade of the xmlrpc.php
