So do you think his two WordPress blogs (I am assuming here..looks a lot like WP, but I'm not pounding out GET requests to verify) were included in this "survey" that was done? I wonder if he's running a safe version? And as mentioned in one of his blog comments, version reporting isn't always reliable and patches that did not change the extractable version number could have also been applied.

In any event, I think WordPress has increasingly become more secure. It's had a small rash of issues a few months back ranging from SQL injection to someone actually backdooring the source, but it's grown up quite a bit. I think someone would be hard pressed to actually come up with the Month of Wordpress bugs. The majority of all other recently reported issues have all from third party add-ons that aren't actually a part of WordPress.
