[wp-hackers] Yesterday's WordPress Hacks

I experienced issues with Rackspace Cloud (Mosso at the time) and security
on two separate WP installs and hosting accounts.  We could never pinpoint
what was going on but permissions would randomly be changed and one site was
eventually hacked pretty bad.  I've since moved both clients to Liquid Web
and haven't worked with Rackspace Cloud since

When I got up this morning I saw several blog posts and tweets about 
WordPress sites being hacked.  From what I have been able to find so 
far, most, if not all, are running on RackSpace cloud.  Has anyone been 
able to identify a point of entry for the hacks?  I assume since it 
seems to be mostly just RackSpace that it is a hosting or plugin issue, 
but I'm trying to be proactive.
