With all the security problems around previous versions of WordPress platform, it is a great idea to immediately upgrade WP installations to the latest available version. Take that, Scoble!
Anyway, WordPress 2.8.5 is out. Spare no time and upgrade now.
- A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
- Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
- Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
- Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.
Don’t be a Scoble, upgrade your WordPress now!
