My hosting service has been posting information about attacks on WordPress web sites.  The fix?  Make sure you are using the latest version of WordPress and update your passwords to make sure they’re as strong as possible.  It’s also being suggested that your username be more difficult.  Use a mix of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols for both.

Here’s an article I found that will help explain what’s going on.
