wordpress-logoIt’s been a busy couple of months in the web development and hosting business. Several new exploits have been discovered and hackers have been ravishing websites all over the world. WordPress has released several updates in the last few weeks as they rapidly respond to newly identified security issues in their software and their partner developers’ systems.

WordPress has just released version 4.2.2 which is a cumulative update including all security patches to date. We recommend you install this update immediately.

Normally, we advise our clients to let new versions run in the market for a few weeks before installing them on commercial sites. However these security updates are extremely important, and have much lower risk of causing issues with your site.

Main Street offers a very inexpensive automatic update service if you are not comfortable running updates to your site, or you don’t want the hassle of monitoring when new updates are available. Contact us for details.
