Stats Plugin Vulnerability

Anyone hosting their own blog and running the WordPress.com Stats plugin should update the plugin to version 1.1.1 immediately or apply the patch below. A critical SQL injection vulnerability was found and fixed. The bug could allow an attacker to steal administrative credentials. (WordPress.com bloggers are not affected.)

Most users will want to download the latest version and simply copy the new files directly over the old ones. Subversion users may do `svn up`. Advanced users may apply the patch manually.

Thanks to Alex Concha who found and reported the bug to me. He also provided the fix.
