    Just got an email about this, from a reliable source:

    A security exploit was recently discovered in the
    WP Super Cache and W3 Total Cache plugins.


    If you've not done so already, you should
    take immediate action to upgrade those plugins
    to prevent any damage to your site(s).


    If you need upgrade guidance, see:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-cache/

    "The exploit was posted by a user on the WordPress
    forums. The plugin authors have now updated their
    code to fix this issue.


    "The security hole allows an attacker to post PHP code
    embedded in comments and that code will be executed
    by your server. This effectively gives them unlimited
    access to all parts of your site and database.
