Mandatory Upgrade: WordPress 2.6.2
2.6.1 hasn’t really warmed up its seat on our servers and now a mandatory upgrade to 2.6.2? Â Hmmm… you’re as surprised as I am, dear readers. Â Through the help of Stefan EsserÂ the WordPress development team has addressed the dangers and vulnerabilities of SQL column truncation and the weakness of mt_rand().
Ryan Boren announced this mandatory security upgrade saying “if you ALLOW OPEN REGISTRATION in your blogs, you should definitely upgrade immediately”. Â Check out the announcement page for more details. Â And alongside the security upgrade are several bug fixes that will make WordPress work even better.
WordPress 2.6.2 is available right here.
