WordPress 3.0.2 – Security Update

On November 30, Automatic released the latest version of their WordPress CMS software which they described as “a mandatory security update for all previous versions”. Along with a number of bug fixes and general security enhancements, this release fixes a security issue that would allow a malicious author-level user to gain greater control of the web site. Their advice is that all users should update their installations even if they do not have untrusted users and, as per our terms, we require all WordPress users hosted by us to update to this version as soon as possible.
