    Exclamation Wordpress 3.0.2 Out - Security Update

    Guess it's time to update, wordpress is out with version 3.0.2 and they state it as
    a mandatory security update for all previous WordPress versions.
    .

    Anyways, the updated features are :

    * Fix moderate security issue where a malicious Author-level user could gain further access to the site.

    Other bugs and security hardening:

    * Remove pingback/trackback blogroll whitelisting feature as it can easily be abused.
    * Fix canonical redirection for permalinks containing %category% with nested categories and paging.
    * Fix occasional irrelevant error messages on plugin activation. (#15062)
    * Minor XSS fixes in request_filesystem_credentials() and when deleting a plugin.
    * Clarify the license in the readme.
    * Multisite: Fix the delete_user meta capability.
    * Multisite: Force current_user_can_for_blog() to run map_meta_cap() even for super admins.
    * Multisite: Fix ms-files.php content type headers when requesting a URL with a query string.
    * Multisite: Fix the usage of the SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL constant for upgraded WordPress MU installs.

    3.0.3 is out too.
    According to wordpress.org
    On December 8, 2010, WordPress 3.0.3 was released to the public. This is a security update for all previous WordPress versions.
    I believe there has been just one bugfix, i.e.
    Fixes issues in the XML-RPC remote publishing interface which under certain circumstances allowed Author- and Contributor-level users to improperly edit, publish or delete posts.

    Weird, I updated all my blogs last week to 3.0.2.
    Starting last night, my blogs had that line to upgrade to 3.0.3.

    Don't blink or there will be another update to do.

    They were doing pretty good since 3.0.1, but now it looks like they are back to their normal mode with a rapid succession of updates.
