Windows Hosting | WordPress 3.9.2 Overview

Leave a Comment
BestWindowsHostingASP.NET - WordPress is a free, Web-based software program that anyone can use to build and maintain a website or blog. It was originally intended as an easy way to set up a blog. But, thanks to the efforts of a large “open source” community of WordPress programmers working to extend and improve its capabilities, WordPress has become much more than just a tool for bloggers. WordPress 3.9.2 is now available as a security release for all previous versions. We strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.

WordPress 3.9.2 also contains other security changes:

Fixes a possible but unlikely code execution when processing widgets (WordPress is not affected by default), discovered by Alex Concha of the WordPress security team.
  • Prevents information disclosure via XML entity attacks in the external GetID3 library, reported by Ivan Novikov of ONSec.
  • Adds protections against brute attacks against CSRF tokens, reported by David Tomaschik of the Google Security Team.
  • Contains some additional security hardening, like preventing cross-site scripting that could be triggered only by administrators.
I recommend that you upgrade any WordPress installation to the latest version every time you are prompted to do so on your dashboard. Since the introduction of WP 3.7, sites will generally auto-update themselves to the latest iteration of the software (within a generation – so WP 3.7.3 will upgrade to WP 3.7.4 but not WP 3.9.2), but it doesn’t happen all in one go. Some of my sites auto-upgraded 2 days ago, some today. And not all my sites have yet auto-upgraded. So you may want to manually jump-the-gun and run the upgrade yourself.

Download WordPress 3.9.2 or venture over to Dashboard → Updates and simply click “Update Now”.
