Security release: Update to WordPress 4.2.3 now

Dear WordPress users: It is time for another important update.

WordPress 4.2.3 was just released, including several important security fixes for all previous WordPress Versions. We recommend you update your websites immediately.

  • WordPress websites with automatic updates enabled and WordPress websites in 1&1 Safe Mode will receive the update shortly.
  • If you have automatic updates disabled, we recommend you update from your WordPress dashboard now.

WordPress versions 4.2.2 and earlier are affected by a critical cross-site scripting vulnerability, which could allow anonymous users to compromise a site. This was reported by Jon Cave of the WordPress Security Team, and fixed by Robert Chapin.

We also fixed an issue where it was possible for a user with Subscriber permissions to create a draft through Quick Draft. Reported by Netanel Rubin from Check Point Software Technologies.

      Cher Ef,

      Notre objectif est de publier rapidement des contenu de qualité. C’est pourquoi nous nous limitons actuellement avec une petite équipe d’experts à rédiger des contenues en anglais, ce qui ne signifie pas que d’autres langues, notamment le français, seront exclues à l’avenir.

      Nous vous remercions pour votre contribution et l’intérêt que vous portez à la 1&1 Community.
