comment WordPress Private Expoit?
There are exploits out there for pretty much everything, zero days. It just depends on if someone feels like the reason is good enough to use it, because they can be rare. He sounds like what some might call a "script kiddie."... or someone who knows nothing at all and wants to sound like a 1337 h4xx0r

comment Is it common practice to log rejected passwords?
Kevin Mitnick was doing a hack and had a logger on a remote server. An inexperienced sysadmin could not exactly remember the password for the server, so the sysadmin kept cycling through his passwords (all of which were network passwords), making Kevin's job easier in that he no longer needed to hack/crack passwords. Allowing a program to record failed passwords is pretty much doing the same thing
