The string is used by a perl script that uses the Category security
vulnerability mentioned in the above dev blog post. I have tried the
script on "fixed" blogs and the fix holds up. For all those interested
in the script, please email me. Interestingly, if the wp_ prefix is
changed to something particular to every user, this can be avoided in
the future (since the table named will be different for all WP blogs).
Should we add a page in the install process that forces the users to
choose a unique table prefix?
