Variation 3.0.4 of WordPress, readily available right away via the upgrade web page in your control panel or for download here, is a really essential upgrade to put on your websites immediately due to the fact that it repairs a core safety and security insect in our HTML hygiene collection, called KSES. I would certainly rank this launch as “vital.”
This concern influences all variations of WordPress before 3.0.4, so if you are still on a 2.X launch you require to upgrade also.
I understand an upgrade throughout the vacations is no enjoyable, however this set deserves taking down the eggnog for. In the spirit of the vacations, think about aiding your good friends also.
If you are a safety scientist, we would certainly value you taking a look over this changeset also to examine our upgrade. We have actually offered it a great deal of idea as well as evaluation however because this is so core we desire as numerous minds on it as feasible. Many thanks to Mauro Gentile as well as Jon Cave (duck_) that found as well as notified us to these XSS susceptabilities initially.
