Released earlier today, available here.
A vulnerability in the Snoopy library was announced today. WordPress 2.6.3 was released to address the vulnerability and is available for download right now.
A colleague of mine at IBM in the LGBT community recently started blogging, so of course I have to share a little link love. Sarah and I chatted on the phone early one morning last week about tools for bloggers, and joining the conversation in the blogoshpere. Oh, and I guess I should correct myself when I refer to the gay community, it seems that LGBT is the preferred acronym over GLBT.
WordPress 2.1 was released yesterday, so I applied the update here.
2.0.7 released today…
Recently a bug in certain versions of PHP came to our attention that could cause a security vulnerability in your blog. We’re able to work around it fairly easily, so we’ve decided to release 2.0.7 to fix the PHP security problem and the Feedburner issue that was in 2.0.6. It is recommended that everyone running WordPress 2.0.6 or lower upgrade to this new version.
Released 2 hours ago…
better get to work on the upgrade!
Update: all done. Good thing too, because there was a security vulnerability in version 2.0.5 and below.
WordPress released an upgrade to version 2.0.5 three weeks ago, and I only found out today because a vulnerability was posted to the bugtraq mailing list (which I subscribe to) today!
Anyway, as usual the upgrade was quick and painless, and everything seems to be working still…
I was looking at my blog site stats tonight and found a referer link from an ibm.com site. Turns out it’s the IBM Blogroll. A site that was set up as a place to find many of IBM’s external bloggers.
Upgraded to WordPress 2.0.4 today… which contains several important security fixes. The upgrade was simple enough. Hope I didn’t break anything in the process
Even with as little traffic as my blog gets, there’s been a good amount of comment spam getting generated. At first it was mostly trackback spam, and I installed Bad Behavior. And things quited down considerably, in fact, I don’t get any trackback spam now at all.
But over the last couple of weeks, the regular comment spam has ratcheted up considerably, bypassing my WP-Blacklist plugin with new IP addresses and author names, so I had to consider another solution. Honestly, I don’t need Viagra.
Anyway, I installed Spam Karma2 a couple days ago, and it’s a much cleaner solution than WPBlacklist. We’ll see how it goes, but so far, so good. The combination of the two plugins for WordPress seems to provide pretty comprehensive protection from spambots.
