Important WordPress Security Update - 2.8.4

Postby Kit on Thu Aug 13, 2009 3:44 pm

Recently another WordPress update was announced. If you're like me, you're getting pretty tired of updating. However, this one is really important because it fixes several security risks! In a nutshell, according to the source, this update will help stop someone from:

  • Resetting your password (just an annoyance)
  • Starting a DoS attack
  • Getting unauthorized access

I'm updated, but it's a bit frustrating that at this point in the game the developers can't release a new version without breaking important security measures that were in place before.

I'm really grateful that they do all this for free, but.... :?

Thank goodness for auto upgrade!
