WordPress 3.0.5 Now Available
For you WordPress junkies out there, get ready, 3.0.5 is now available and the focus is security.
According to the WordPress blog, "This security release is required if you have any untrusted user accounts, but it also comes with important security enhancements and hardening. All WordPress users are strongly encouraged to update."
Other issues that were addressed, include:
Two moderate security issues were fixed that could have allowed a Contributor- or Author-level user to gain further access to the site.
One information disclosure issue was addressed that could have allowed an Author-level user to view contents of posts they should not be able to see, such as draft or private posts.
Two security enhancements were added. One improved the security of any plugins which were not properly leveraging the security API. The other offers additional defense in depth against a vulnerability that was fixed in previous release.
WordPress users can upgrade their blog from the dashboard or download it here.
