WordPress Update – critical to prevent cross-site scripting hack


WordPress_SecurityWordPress update 4.0.1 is now available. This is a critical security release for all previous versions  and WordPress have advised users to update all sites immediately.

Sites that support automatic background updates will be updated to WordPress 4.0.1 automatically. If you are still on WordPress 3.9.2, 3.8.4, or 3.7.4, you will be updated to 3.9.3, 3.8.5, or 3.7.5 to keep everything secure. (They don’t support older versions, so please update to 4.0.1 so that critical updates are automatically installed.)

WordPress versions 3.9.2 and earlier are affected by a critical cross-site scripting vulnerability, which could enable anonymous users to compromise a site.

If you would like advice regarding WordPress updates or any security issue, then contact me and I can take a look at what’s needed to keep  your website secure.
