WordPress 1.5.x safe from XML-RPC worm

In case you didn’t already see my post over on the WordPress Development Blog, rest assured that WordPress is safe from the recently announced PHPXMLRPC worm. Some of the articles about this worm point to old information indicating that WP 1.5 is vulnerable, but that is incorrect. Versions 1.2.x and earlier are in danger, however. So if you have any older WP installations, you should upgrade them immediately, or delete the xmlrpc class files as indicated in the post I made on the main WP site.
