    Download WordPress 2.8.4 Security Release


    Just recently there was an upgrade of Download WordPress 2.8.3 Security Update.

    Wordpress has come up with one more Security Release – WordPress 2.8.4 Security Release

    Download WordPress 2.8.4 Security Update

    Yesterday a vulnerability was discovered: a specially crafted URL could be requested that would allow an attacker to bypass a security check to verify a user requested a password reset. As a result, the first account without a key in the database (usually the admin account) would have its password reset and a new password would be emailed to the account owner. This doesn’t allow remote access, but it is very annoying.

    You can upgrade automatically to WordPress 2.8.4 from your Dashboard.

    Alternatively you can download from the following link provided.

      Thanks Nihar, Downloaded. Looked like it could have been an annoying security issue if anyone tried it on your blog!

      Gonna upgrade my blog to latest 2.84 now.

    4. I went to download version 2.8.3 & saw that 2.8.4 was up already. The great thing about WordPress is that problems get fixed quickly, before lots of users could end up being compromised.

      I upgraded as well, luckily it wasn’t that serious but more annoying as people could just constantly reset your password.

    6. I upgraded and couldn’t believe how simple it was. I’ve upgraded loads of software in the past and 9 times out of 10 it fails. This was a joy to do.
