This, wordpress, on the same server serving out the iso images. Physical seperation 101 or complete lack of it. I did read some comments in their announcement post that they're rattling a can for money for more hardware to buy another server just for the wordpress machine to at least give it some seperation.

For a few clients that wanted wp no matter what we advised we ended up having to deal with the devil, and so we ran the wordpress server on a local lan machine not accessible from the internet and automated scraped/rsync over ssh'd off a static version to host as a static html page on the public server.

Probably someone will pop up in a minute and offer them a cloud solution, because that's really well physically and electrically isolated also.

They need to stop with the fanboy rahrah, lick their wounds and do things betterer in future.
