Time to get another update to keep your blog up to date against the latest security attach and glitches. The changes are not major, but at least one serious security issue has been fixed. Here is what the people at WordPress had to say about this issue. This update includes:
- A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
- Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
- Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
- Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.
