A new worm is circulating that inserts itself into older versions of the popular Wordpress blogging platform.
According to the official Wordpress Blog
Luckily (or not) the worm contains an error in its "cleanup" section and actually breaks every single link in the affected blog. The latest version of Wordpress is immune to the attack and all users are strenuously urged to update.Lorelle on Wordpress
mentions steps users can take to see whether their blog has been hacked as well as links to help mitigate the effect if they have.
One notable victim so far is Robert Scoble

Users who use Wordpress' hosted blog service are already protected by the latest version. Users who host their own blogs should update immediately
