Blog / Akismet flaw

Akismet flaw

…FP is not affected, in case you wished to know (and I did :P).

The Akismet Plugin in FP is not the same as the WP one, so FP is not affected by the flaw that Michael Daw has reported.

Here is a bit more detailed explanation.

The bug is in the user interface (probably a vulnerability to Cross Site Scripting attacks, I think), which fp’s akismet lacks, so our poor UI is for once good for something :P
