WordPress – Important security update

The Content Management System (CMS) WordPress is vulnerable and makes websites created vulnerable. Of this, all issues from 3.7 to 5.0 inclusive are threatened. Now the developers have released the secured version 5.0.1. Admins should make sure that they use the latest edition of the CMS. Some websites support automatic updates. If this is not the case, you can start an update from the dashboard under the point updates or download and install WordPress 5.0.1 manually. Alternatively, according to WordPress, secured versions of older versions such as 4.9 are also available.

In a security warning, the developers mention seven security holes. If attackers attack the potential loopholes, they could, among other things, delete files, manipulate posts, and leak user data. The description does not specify whether a vulnerability is critical. Those responsible recommend WordPress admins to a speedy update.
