I received this e-mail, which I assume is “phishing” and of course, I didn’t click on the link. I wanted to alert other users and also to make doubly sure this is indeed “phishing.”

Forward the email to support at wordpress dot com right away and ask staff to look into it.
Also, are you the only one with admin privileges? Has there been any weirdness at your blog lately? This totally looks like phishing.
The servers at WordPress can withstand anything short of a direct attack by the combined forces of Cthulhu and Godzilla. That really does not look legit, as you picked up immediately.
How much unnecessary stress could attempted hacking cause? lol
