WordPress 2.3.3 Urgent Security Release

Attention please! WordPress 2.3.3 has release, with an important security update. WordPress 2.3.3 is an urgent security release. If you have registration enabled a flaw was found in the XML-RPC implementation such that a specially crafted request would allow a user to edit posts of other users on that blog. Unless you want registered users to be able to edit your blog posts, you should update your WordPress installation to version 2.3.3. In addition to fixing this security flaw, 2.3.3 fixes a few minor bugs. If you are interested only in the security fix, download the fixed version of xmlrpc.php and copy it over your existing xmlrpc.php.

You can get the latest version of WordPress here. Download it today, upgrade your previous installation and continue blogging!
