There’s an urgent release of a WordPress upgrade that addresses a potentially serious security issue, particularly for those of us who like to save unfinished entries in draft mode. Since I’d missed out on the last three upgrades, I figured I should probably jump on this one.
A word of advice: follow the directions about disabling all of your plugins. I’d never really followed that step in previous upgrades, so I didn’t this time, either. Big mistake, that.
You’ll probably also notice once you’ve upgraded your WP installation that several of your favorite plugins have also been upgraded. Half of mine were out of date, so I’ve spent the better part of today upgrading each one. Not fun.
All I can say is thank goodness for the Firefox FireFTP plugin.
