WordPress 4.2.4 Security Release – Update Now!

This morning (August 4th, 2015) WordPress released a very important security update that addressed six major security vulnerabilities.  The release noted three cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, a potential SQL injection issue, a potential timing side-channel attack, and a fix that prevents an attacker from potentially locking a post from being edited.

This release was automatically pushed to all versions of WordPress that allowed automatic updating.  Furthermore, if you are a WP Cover client, your site was updated by our team this morning.

WordPress and WP Cover highly recommend that you ensure your WordPress install has been updated to prevent potential vulnerabilities.

If you have any questions or need assistance updating & securing your WordPress website, please reach out to our team or sign-up for a WP Cover package!
