Ok, so hackers suck. It seems that the version of WordPress I was running was vulnerable to some sort of hack. So in an effort to avoid the nasty buggers and remove the hassle of maintaining my own install of WordPress I moved my blog to WordPress.com. The URL isn’t as pretty but at least I can stop worrying about security patches.
The other good thing about this move is that it fits in with my recent personal commitment to reduce complexity in my life. Letting the guys at WordPress.com worry about security is less complex than having to do it myself.
