WordPress Update 3.5.2

WordPress Update 3.5.2

WordPress Update 3.5.2 stole my day today !

I awoke this morning to a surprise. Two days ago I signed up for RSGB Membership for £1….it’s a special offer for the RSGB’s centenary year. A great deal if your a frugal radio ham !

I poured my coffee and set about creating a post for the amateur radio website I help with

When I logged in to create  the post I was greeted with the ever helpful WordPress Updates screen…

WordPress updates

WordPress 3.5.2 is a maintenance and security release that fixes several issues in the blogging software.

The development team suggests strongly that site admins and webmasters update their blogs immediately to the new version.

As far as security fixes are concerned, the following have been resolved in WordPress 3.5.2.

  • Server-side request forgery attacks that could provide attackers with access to the site.
  • Contributors can no longer publish posts improperly.
  • The SWFUpload library has been updated that fixes several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
  • Blocking denial of service attacks against sites that use password protected posts.
  • An update to TinyMCE fixing a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
  • Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerability fixes.
  • Full path not disclosed when uploads fail.

So 6 hours, 8 coffee’s, a few cigarettes and 48 websites later here we are . . .

The moral of the story?

If a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing well !

All VistaMister customers who are powered by WordPress have had all themes, plugins and WordPress core updated.

Now I am off for another well earned pint of cyder.
