This is a quick alert to let everyone know that a new version of Akismet has been released to address the recent security vulnerability. As usual, I was very impressed with the speed and accuracy of WordPress in addressing this issue, in particular Ryan Boren and Matt Mullenweg.

For details on downloading the latest WordPress Akismet Plugin, please see: WordPress 2.1.3 Akismet Vulnerability.

I will wait a period of time to allow everyone to upgrade before releasing the full advisory, so keep an eye out for it.
