WordPress security update – don’t neglect it

Written by catpaw

WordPress is quite diligent in issuing patches, especially for security issues.  This week, they issued another that upgrades WP to 4.1.2 and patches a critical issue. The patch corrects the following:

  • stops anonymous users from uploading their own files
  • halts a  cross-site scripting vulnerability that can be used in an social engineering hack
  • patches a SQL plugin vulnerability

Some of your plugins may not work after the update, but that’s always a small price to pay. You can always find another plugin.
