The other day, WordPress 3.0.5 was released to combat a handful of security exploits. For the most part, our clients are not vulnerable to the security exploits that were open in WordPress 3.0.4, but it’s a good idea to update to the new version, anyway.
We updated the Ten-321 Enterprises network of sites and blogs this evening. As expected, the update was extremely simple and painless. Most of this is due to the great work the WordPress team is doing, but some credit also goes to Site5 for doing such a great job configuring their hosting accounts to work so well with WordPress. We have dealt with quite a few other hosts and found that some of them make it nearly impossible to keep WordPress up-to-date, and even harder to keep it secured properly.
With that said, we’d like to thank the WordPress team for their unwavering commitment to security and their consistent work to improve and harden the system.
