WordPress 2.6.5 Released, security fix and bug fix


Posted: November 26th, 2008 under Software.

A new WordPress version was released yesterday. it contains one security fix and three bug fixes. As always, an update is recommended.

Quote from WordPress.org:

The security issue is an XSS exploit discovered by Jeremias Reith that fortunately only affects IP-based virtual servers running on Apache 2.x. If you are interested only in the security fix, copy wp-includes/feed.php and wp-includes/version.php from the 2.6.5 release package.

2.6.5 contains three other small fixes in addition to the XSS fix. The first prevents accidentally saving post meta information to a revision. The second prevents XML-RPC from fetching incorrect post types. The third adds some user ID sanitization during bulk delete requests.
