WordPress 2.8.4 Security Release

Wordpress Logo

As predicted, WordPress 2.8.4 has been released. No surprise here, after news about the admin password reset “exploit” issue surfaced yesterday. Yeah, there’s some arguments over whether it’s a security issue or not, but it can be pretty annoying if you get hit by it.

It’s highly recommended you upgrade immediately. This is a pretty minor upgrade as it’s supposed to only fix the one bug. Anyone know the record of most point releases on a single branch?

By the way, if you ever come across an undiscovered WordPress security issue, make sure you know the correct way to report it. Blabbing about how you used it on sites you don’t own/administer under the guise of “proof-of-concept” is not the correct way,.

We fixed this problem last night and have been testing the fixes and looking for other problems since then. Version 2.8.4 which fixes all known problems is now available for download and is highly recommended for all users of WordPress.
