Wordpress 2.3.3 Security Release Update (Tues Feb 5th)
« on: February 05, 2008, 08:24 AM »
A new version of Wordpress has been released just a few hours ago by the Wordpress team. The update is considered critical and fixes a security vulnerability and some minor bugs. The security flaw was found in the implementation of the XML-RPC which would allow any registered user to edit comments of other users using a specially crafted request.

Upgrading from 2.3.2 involves only replacing 5 files. I've taken a small screencast of my upgrade.
