At 12:01 PM today I noticed Twitter erupting with announcements regarding a security vulnerability. We patched this nine minutes later, and have already deployed the fix to WordPress.org. We recommend that you update immediately.
This vulnerability is affecting a very large set of WordPress plugins, but can only be exploited within WordPress admin, making it a low-risk probability (but not a new one).
Regardless, we’ve updated, and so should you.
