No less than a week after WordPress released 3.0.2, they released 3.0.3. The new 3.0.3 is a security upgrade to version 3.0.2, which was a security upgrade to 3.0.1. I wonder when the security update for this latest WordPress will come out? At any rate, because this is a security update, everyone who’s running WordPress for their blog should upgrade to it immediately.
This release fixes issues in the remote publishing interface, which under certain circumstances allowed Author- and Contributor-level users to improperly edit, publish, or delete posts.
These issues only affect sites that have remote publishing enabled.
Remote publishing is disabled by default, but you may have enabled it to use a remote publishing client such as one of the WordPress mobile apps. You can check these settings on the “Settings → Writing” screen.
Upgrading WordPress is super easy if you have the auto upgrade feature enable. However, my server doesn’t allow that for security reasons. That means I had to download 3.0.3 and upload it the old fashion way. It was still a very easy process. Happy upgrading!
