One-click plugin search and install now works without issue Yes!!

The update must have come available sometime after the morning, which is when I last checked for it. A thread on the WP forum was "a buzz" with the issue for the last few days.

However - with the update came the offer to update plugins as well, which I indicated "yes" as they were not active anyhow. Upon checking, the dashboard still the updates to these plugins as still needing to be actioned for updates. (sigh)

Yup - I started getting my email alerts on this update for various domains earlier this morning. Sounds like a worthwhile update. I wonder how many people are choosing not to have the auto updates applied and the reasons why?

Didn't get any emails - never have. Just monitored the Wordpress site for updates.

I didn't disable auto updates on mine.

Just went to each site I have using Wordpress:
  1. It didn't check for the update until I logged.
  2. It didn't auto update either.
  3. Did all mine manually seeing I was there.

Jetpack Security Update Requires Immediate Action!

I don't use this but for those that do and missed the email they sent out:
Quote:
Jetpack has released it’s newest security update 2.9.3 telling everyone to update as soon as possible due to a potential and critical security threat. They are sending out emails to all users who are not on the latest version to update the plugin quickly to avoid being logged out of Jetpack for the site’s own safety.

While this is not linked to the heartbeed bug, the threat was still a nasty one. The open door can be combined with other attacks to get into your site quicker and easier.

WordPress 3.8.3 Maintenance Release

Geez.
Quote:
WordPress 3.8.3 is now available to fix a small but unfortunate bug in the WordPress 3.8.2 security release.

The “Quick Draft” tool on the dashboard screen was broken in the 3.8.2 update. If you tried to use it, your draft would disappear and it wouldn’t save. While we doubt anyone was writing a novella using this tool, any loss of content is unacceptable to us.

We recognize how much trust you place in us to safeguard your content, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We’re sorry we let you down.

WordPress Sites Seeing Increased Malware, Brute Force Attacks This Week

Have you made sure your Wordpress installation is secure and everything is up to date?
Quote:
A glut of WordPress sites have fallen victim to both malware infections and a series of brute force attacks that have making the rounds over the past several days, researchers claim.

According to Peter Gramantik, a malware researcher at Sucuri, highly obfuscated malware payloads have been targeting sites with out of date plugins and sloppy, weak passwords.

While the fact that malware is targeting outdated plugins and weak passwords isn’t particularly surprising, Gramantik claims what makes the attack interesting is the fact that the payload is being blindly injected. Bug-riddled PHP is apparently corrupting legitimate WordPress files, along with theme and plugin files that belong to the popular content management system.

RevSlider Vulnerability Leads to Thousands of Sites Hacked

If you are using RevSlider you need to read this alert:

Quote:
Google has blacklisted over 11,000 websites as of Sunday due to the SoakSoak attack. Hackers are using the RevSlider hole to infect sites with the malware. It has been reported that over 100,000 websites has this vulnerability. It comes in through the hole of the RevSlider plugin, uploads its own backdoor to your site, then infects everything on the server. If a site is on a shared hosting and does not use RevSlider, it could still become infected due to other sites hosted on the same server. Any version below 4.2 is a security threat and should be updated immediately. Right now they are at version 4.6.5.

Using Trackbacks? Be Cautious!

If you are allowing trackback and pingbacks you might want to read this:
