I've spent a lot of time reading and researching WP customization and came across the issue of blog security.

The gist is that unless you've really done all the work yourself to be sure that your code is secure, using and modifying other people's themes and css could introduce security holes into your blog.

http://blogsecurity.net/ discusses the topic at length with a lot of helpful information about securing your blog from external attack.

Also, be careful when downloading and installing wordpress themes. They may look great, but the could have embedded links to commercial websites in them.

I've been installing various themes and experimenting with them. I just found a link in my footer to some website that sells shoes. I have no idea how it got there, because they certainly aren't my "Sponser" [sic]
