WordPress Security Update

An important security update was released today for WordPress. Version 4.1.2 fixes several vulnerabilities that could allow users to compromise your site. WordPress versions 4.1.1 and earlier are vulnerable, and should be updated to the latest version of WordPress as soon as possible.

We encourage everyone to head over to Dashboard → Updates in their WordPress dashboard, and click “Update Now”. Once you’re running WordPress 4.1.2, you’re protected from these vulnerabilities.

We’re currently attempting to apply a security patch to all sites on VaultPress, regardless of the plan they’re on. Some sites will not be automatically upgraded due to permission issues, so it’s important to make sure you’re up-to-date!

We also recommend that you take this moment to ensure you’re running the latest and greatest version of VaultPress. You can do so by heading back to Dashboard → Updates in your WordPress dashboard. If an older version of VaultPress is listed on this page, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to the latest version with a single click. You can also find our plugin in the Plugin Directory.

By running the latest versions of WordPress, VaultPress, and all your themes and plugins, you help to ensure that your site remains safe, secure, and speedy! As always, if you have any questions, drop us a line.
