If you use WordPress, you know that updates received by the CMS are more or less common. Continually being developed and improved features, so it is normal to see, every so often, the typical sign of new updates. The version 4.1.1 is now available. It is simply a security and maintenance release. Although we can say that it is quite necessary because it solves most of the encountered problems.
First of all, to mention that the proper developers have admitted that it is a question of an essential update, as it fixes a security problem of serious XSS that allows compromising the platforms. If you do not implement the new version, very much we are afraid of that you are in danger.
Moreover, there have been maintenance, for example, update emojis support (with new icons), a change in OpenSSL that blocks communication with unsecured pages, and several changes in the addresses of the entries. The number of settings reaches up to 52, so we recommend that upgrade as soon as possible. Again, if do not, you are exposed to a serious vulnerability.
In general, the WordPress installation will indicate you in an automatic way that the update is available. You can follow the appropriate steps to keep you up to date. In any case, should not surprise that there is more news during the next few weeks in this regard.
WordPress has become the most popular CMS, with all sorts of applications, themes and plugins that are constantly being updated. Something that, on the other hand, is an extremely positive point.
