Hackers have breached security at blogging host WordPress and broken in to several of its servers, putting any information on them at risk.

Automattic and WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg says that Wednesday’s incident was a low-level root access breach. The company is reviewing its data logs to figure out what information may have been stolen and is working on patching any holes in its security.

It seems unlikely that personally identifiable user information was taken during the attack, but Automattic has yet to complete its investigation.

If you host a WordPress.org website on your own servers, you shouldn’t be affected, but Automattic suggests that you make sure your various online accounts utilize a variety of strong passwords.
