The release of WordPress 2.8.2 has been announced. This was a relatively unexpected release, however it fixes a cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to comment author URLs not being fully sanitized. This could then cause you to be directed to another site from your admin panel.
I’ve been reading on Twitter that people haven’t had any problems upgrading, it looks to be a pretty simple fix. Just to be on the safe side, I’d recommend you take a backup before upgrading.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
