by using microsoft software? :-)
seriously though, going back to our previous discussion, and rubbing it in a
bit, this is an example of what i mean. If it was a microsoft product, we'd
have 50 posts saying MY GOD MICROSOFT ARE LAME! USE OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE!!!
the solution is to keep softeware up to date. On any platform. and make sure
you use software that is still maintained by the vendor.
PS: Wordpress has had a fairly bad security history iirc. infact, most PHP
applications have a bad security history, because the sort of people who
*generally* write PHP code generally don't know the concepts of security.
