Can anybody please comment on the relevance of WordPress? Bearing in mind that
the  flaw may have been address already, it is still mentioned among
applications that are susceptible to an XML-RPC exploit.

My host's server was crippled by a DoS attack last Saturday. It was due to a
phpBB exploit which got many sites including mine suspended. So, it was not
just a case of backup, then restore.

Thanks for any reassurance,
