In a direct email from Matt Mullenweg via the WordPress.org announcement list, news has reached our ears about an important WordPress Security Update, WordPress version 3.0.4.
Apparently, they have fixed a critical vulnerability in WordPress’ core HTML sanitation library, and because this library is used lots of places it’s important that everyone update as soon as possible.
We have already been busy updating dozens of WordPress sites we support, mostly without incident. We recommend you back up your site before upgrading, but upgrade soon.
We would like to wish all our readers, supporters and colleagues a merry Christmas break and a Happy New Year. Blog On!
