WordPress 2.0.4 Released – Fixes Security Issues

Keep on Guard!

Just to let you all know, if you are using WordPress you can upgrade today.

The latest stable release of WordPress (Version 2.0.4) is available.

his release contains several important security fixes, so it’s highly recommended for all users. We’ve also rolled in a number of bug fixes (over 50!), so it’s a pretty solid release across the board.

Also fixes for the serious SQL vulnerabilities that led to several WordPress sites being hacked.

Upgrading is fairly simple, just overwrite your old files with the latest from the download. If you’d like more thorough instructions, the Codex is always the best spot.

Since this is a security release, if you have any friends with blogs make sure to remind them to upgrade and lend a hand if they’re not too savvy. We’re all in this together.

As we reported here at Darknet, there was some serious security issues in 2.0.3 and below so it’s recommended you upgrade immediately.

    WordPress is great, Updates and fixes are always welcome in my book. Thankfully the codex does help ease multiple site updates. (If you run a number of wordpress installations)

    No wonder a lot of hosters do not like having wordpress. Their code is messed up.
