WordPress 4.6.1: security release

Two serious security vulnerabilities in WordPress 4.6 are fixed in the latest version, 4.6.1. Several other minor issues are also addressed. See the release notes for additional details.

WordPress sites that are configured to install minor updates automatically should be auto-upgraded to version 4.6.1 in the next few days, but anyone who manages a WordPress site should immediately verify this, and install the update manually if it’s not already running 4.6.1.

Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
