Default WordPress security update (3.0.4)

URGENT

Note from Matt Mullenweg of WordPress.org:
Version 3.0.4 of WordPress, available immediately through the update page in your dashboard or for download here, is a very important update to apply to your sites as soon as possible because it fixes a core security bug in our HTML sanitation library, called KSES. I would rate this release as “critical.”
Do not be afraid to use the Update Automatically button in your WP admin section — I have used this function on many sites and for several versions almost instantly, and with no problem. It is still prudent to back-up your database and files first however (just consider what it would take if you had to reconstruct from scratch!).

Additional information (and some illumination) is available from the blog Lorelle on WordPress. Her advice may be especially useful if you are running 2.x versions of the software.
