Another quick heads up peeps.Â WordPress 2.6.2 is out and you should update ASAP – especially if you
allow registrations on your blog.
See the WordPress Dev Blog for details, but in short the new update fixes the SQL Column Truncation vulnerability and the weakness of mt_rand().Â Apparently other PHP apps are vulnerable too – read the WP Dev Blog entry.
This version also fixes a bunch of new bugs.Â I’ll be updating in the next 24 hours and would advise you to do the same.Â Don’t forget to deactivate and then reactivate your plugins – and if you haven’t upgraded for a few versions, check their compatibilities.
