WordPress 4.2.4 – security release
This release addresses six important security issues, so you should ensure your site gets updated ASAP. Here’s the official blog post from WordPress.org with details of what is contained in the release.
If you have automatic background updates enabled, that’s the default setting for minor and security releases, then you should receive an email from your site when it has been updated. The email is sent to whomever is designated to receive admin emails in your General Settings. I received several of these notifications yesterday covering the sites I manage.
So to ensure your site’s security, please check that your site is updated. Also, keep your eye out for the next major release, WordPress 4.3, slated for release on August 18.
