Hello bloggers mates….well it might be little bit late for alerting you but I think you should upgrade your WordPress blog if you’re using the old version of it. There are a lot of security flaw in the previous versions.Furthermore, if you search in google with the keyword “My blog hacked” and you’ll get around 1,060,000 results.
I’ve not upgraded my blog till yesterday and I was using wordpress 2.3.1 version. I knew about the security vulnerabilities but I was afraid of losing data or site with some possible mistake in upgrading. But today, I successfully upgraded to WordPress 2.5.1 and it was so easy , I did it within 1 minute.
Why to upgrade the wordpress ?
- Technorati has announced not to inedex those blogs which are not upgraded.
- There are a lot of security flaw in 2.3.X version of wordpress.
