WordPress 2.8.2 Security Patch

20 Lug/09

wordpressA new version of the popular blogging platform WordPress was released just a few minutes ago. It is an unexpected upgrade considering that the last WordPress update was less than two weeks ago. The new update fixes a security vulnerability that affects all but the latest version of WordPress.

The XSS vulnerability could be used to create comment author urls that would redirect the system administrator away from the blog’s website to another site to exploit the situation. WordPress webmasters are encouraged to update their blogs as soon as possible to patch the security vulnerability.

Updates are available directly from within the WordPress interface if the correct server login information are supplied or by updating the traditional way which would mean to download the WordPress release from the WordPress website, upload it to the web server and run the upgrade command manually. The release information should also be displayed prominently in the WordPress admin interface with a link to the automatic update script of WordPress.
