WordPress 2.1.1 Dangerous, Upgrade

WordPress is reporting that a cracker gained user-level access to one of the servers and modified the 2.1.1 download file. The hacker managed to modify two files in WP 2.1.1 to include code that would allow for remote PHP execution. The 2.1.1 package does not seem to have been compromised when it was initially released, WordPress encourages all users to upgrade to 2.1.2 to patch the security hole.

Long story short: If you downloaded WordPress 2.1.1 within the past 3-4 days, your files may include a security exploit that was added by a cracker, and you should upgrade all of your files to 2.1.2 immediately.
