Recently a bug in certain versions of PHP came to the attention of the WordPress developers, this bug could cause a security vulnerability in your any blogs running version 2.0.6 or below blog. It was fairly easy to work around, so they decided to release 2.0.7, just 10 days after the release of 2.0.6, to fix the PHP security problem and the Feedburner issue that was in 2.0.6. It is recommended that everyone running WordPress 2.0.6 or lower upgrade to this new version.
