I had a site go down last night, and I think it’s a domain problem; however, when I was on tech support with my hosting provider last night, he mentioned more than once that Wordpress had some major security issues.
I was just wondering if any of you could expound on any security issues of which you might be aware?  Of particular concern to me is the fact that right before it went down, my functions.php file had been truncated TO THE SCREEN.  In other words, the last 10-15 lines of my functions.php file were echoed to the screen (including <?php ?> tags!!), something I’ve NEVER seen happen before.
Thanks for any advice.
