Your WordPress Blog Might Be Vulnerable to Attack

This alert was given early in September, but my post is by way of reminder to those of you who are running WordPress-powered blogs or web sites.  If you have been meaning to “get around to it,” go and do it today.  Below you will find your official “Round Tuit.”  Go ahead and get it done. 

You want to update our version of WordPress to 3.6.1, which fixes a Remote Code Execution vulnerability. For more information on this issue please read the article on Sophos.

Instructions for making this happen can be found at
