Salam & hello to all my dearest reader, 6 days ago WordPress development team release their latest version which is WordPress 2.3.3 and this is an urgent security release. By the way anyone know which plug-in can do for the upgrading process?
The wordpress automatic upgrade plug-in from techie-buzz seems not work for me anymore. I need another plugin.
“If you have registration enabled a flaw was found in the XML-RPC implementation such that a specially crafted request would allow a user to edit posts of other users on that blog. In addition to fixing this security flaw, 2.3.3 fixes a few minor bugs. If you are interested only in the security fix, download the fixed version of
xmlrpc.php and copy it over your existing
xmlrpc.php. Otherwise, you can get the entire release here.
Also, there is a vulnerability in the WP-Forum plugin that is being actively exploited right now. If you are using this plugin, please remove it until an update is available from its author.
Since we are talking security, remember to use strong passwords and change them regularly. While you’re updating WP and your plugins, consider refreshing your passwords.” - Taken from WordPress official blog.
