Close on the heels of WordPress 4.6 comes a quick WordPress update to fix two new WordPress security issues. Version 4.6.1 is a security release for all previous versions and we updated all our WordPress Maintenance Plan client websites immediately.
WordPress versions 4.6 and earlier are affected by two security issues: a cross-site scripting vulnerability via image filename; and a path traversal vulnerability in the upgrade package uploader.
As always, these security releases by WordPress are not a sign of an insecure platform, but more of well managed, secure and exciting software that takes care of issues proactively and rapidly as they arise.
