WordPress 2.6.5 released to fix security problem

WordPressWordPress has just announced the release of version 2.6.5, which fixes one security problem and three bugs.

According to WP :

The security issue is an XSS exploit discovered by Jeremias Reith that fortunately only affects IP-based virtual servers running on Apache 2.x. If you are interested only in the security fix, copy wp-includes/feed.php and wp-includes/version.php from the 2.6.5 release package.

2.6.5 contains three other small fixes in addition to the XSS fix. The first prevents accidentally saving post meta information to a revision. The second prevents XML-RPC from fetching incorrect post types. The third adds some user ID sanitization during bulk delete requests. For a list of changed files, consult the full changeset between 2.6.3 and 2.6.5.

Sounds like it’s worth upgrading. You can download the latest version of WordPress at the link below 🙂
