WordPress 2.6.3 Released

Last Updated on by

It was just announced that WordPress 2.6.3 has been released due to a security issue in something called Snoopy. Snoopy is something that grabs the feeds that are displayed in your dashboard. It’s supposed to be a relatively minor risk. If you don’t want to download the whole upgrade, you can get the following 2 files from the release post:

  • wp-includes/class-snoopy.php
  • wp-includes/version.php

And replace them. I just upgraded and it was a pretty painless process.


Leland Fiegel was the original founder of ThemeLab. He is a web developer who loves WordPress and blogging.

    I like the automatic upgrade plugin, its painless.

    Not posting?


    Where are you Leland?

  • W3Library

    They’ve broken the AJAX I think in this version.

  • Anto

    No joke.

    I think hes dead to be honest. Its not like Leland to knot even pop in and say hes fine.

    Hasnt been on msn, gtalk nor nothing.

    Im sure hes fine. =)

  • Gabriel

    I know Leland, talked to him on the phone a week or two ago. He said everything is fine, he just has some other things going on in his life right now. I think he will probably be back.

  • Calítoe.:.

    Still no news? :(

  • Anto

    Yea i wonder where the hell he is.

  • Yang Yang

    2.7’s been out for a while now, and this is about 2.6?

  • Pete

    For someone as involved in the internet as Leland it would be next to impossible for him not to have left any sign of him… as sad as it may seem, I think there’s a possibility he may have died.

    Having said that, he’s done a good job in not giving to much away about where he comes from etc.

    If this website doesn’t go down, then at least we know he’s paying the hosting fees… but somehow i think it will go down this year??

  • Mr. Theme

    If he’s dead or in jail, can I buy this site?


  • Calítoe.:.

    I’m afraid we’ve lost him forever, he hasn’t updated anything on his Internet life since October. That’s not normal, really… :(

  • Hades

    Still nothing? Where he could be?


    @Calitoe: Don’t say something like that … :(


    I have tried with this version. But now I move to use versione 2.6.2 and I feel it is ok!

  • Dennis Kjærgaard

    he will be back :)

  • cuteegirlee

    I reckon he’s dead… any one else think so?
