Version 2.1.1 of Wordpress has been backdoored. That is to say, a hacker got into a wordpress.org server and modified some files to give them full access to any web server running that version of Wordpress. Check to see if you're running 2.1.1 and if you are, upgrade to 2.1.2 right away. For more information, see the full disclosure at wordpress.org.
