WordPress 2.8.2 Available for Download

By Mohnish On July 21, 2009 Under Blogging, News

WordPress, the most popular blogging software is vulnerable. You don’t need to worry about it, WordPress has released a security patch — 2.8.2. If you are using 2.8 or 2.8.1 you should upgrade right away!

Quote from WordPress:

WordPress 2.8.2 fixes an XSS vulnerability. Comment author URLs were not fully sanitized when displayed in the admin. This could be exploited to redirect you away from the admin to another site. Download 2.8.2 or automatically upgrade from the Tools->Upgrade page of your blog’s admin.

Sensonize.com got hacked a few days back because of this vulnerability which is extremely dangerous. You can lose all your content and blog if a hacker runs this exploit on your blog.

The upgrade changes only 10 files and doesn’t touch the database. A simple upload and replace is all that’s required. Or you can use the auto upgrade feature built into the WordPress software.

Download WordPress 2.8.2

    Thanks for the information, they fixed it quite fast, because I logged in on my blog and it was like “Upgrade 2.8.2” I was wondering what was wrong with wordpress to have an update so soon after they release the 2.8.1.. Now I do know.. lol Losing my content would be awful!
