Good post Ray.  The interesting part will be when they work out what kind of attack vector was used because we all might have a hole we don't yet know about.

Actually I am in the middle of doing my first conversion from the mysql API to PDO, and it is a lot less work than I thought it would be.  I really like PDO; should have moved a long time ago.

@Cd& one nice thing is that you can connect to all of the DB extensions at the same time ;-)

Meaning that you can convert your scripts in small steps.

The security side is a lot less work, and it is enforced by PDO. if you do something stupid it throws and exception and let's you know you are an idiot. ;^)
