I have now, and just upgrading the last couple, just many sites have been seriously customised so having to evolve them.

And I felt like a rant, lol

No problem, not sure how good it is though.

I've heard Media Temple have told their customers to stop using timthumb.php altogether as apparently the latest releases have been hacked as well.

Hi Guys

Just used the Timthumb Vulnerability Scanner, it works well and I was really suprised to see how many were open to attack, just a tip because I took ages to find it, lol after you activate it go to the Tools menu to do a scan and then you can auto update to latest safe version of Tim Thumb.

the "login lockdown" and "wordpress firewall" plugins are a good start. I use them myself, and they are free.
