My apologies if you saw a couple of posts about financial news last night on the site or via RSS – somehow a person/bot created a user account on my blog with administrator privileges and posted a couple of articles.

I don’t think I set it up the way it was with anyone being able to register AND be given Administrator access – but I have had this blog running for a long time so maybe I did at one point and forgot to turn it off. Or maybe there’s a backdoor somewhere in one of my plugins?
