In this THREAD, the hack on older WP blogs that hadn’t upgraded talks about some of the cures to use, to eliminate the hack. WP 2.5.1 supposedly isn’t vulnerable, UNLESS your blog was hacked PRIOR to the Upgrade.
Seems that part of the plan of these hackers was to also leave scripts, bogus users in your blog, so that when you did upgrade, they got in the front door, though I am no techie, so I could be reading this wrong.

There is a whole bunch of PHP talk about checking this and that, and frankly I am so confused I am off to make a gallon of fresh coffee. :bang:
Maybe someone with more tech savvy can comment on what a dumb blond like me is to do, like how in blazes does one check every theme, plugin for the codes, and all that crap. :grrr:
And this is the first real public airing of the matter by the wordpress guru’s too, which really steams me.
Just like SP3 for XP is still causing havoc, and no one seems to have any damn answers. Makes one look back on the old commodore 64 with fondness. whistle
