Either WordPress is getting buggier or its community is getting more vigilante and eagle-eyed about patching up any possible security vulnerability in the widely used blogging software from company Automattic.
The third .01 update in two months has been released to fix and plug some 40 security vulnerabilities in the latest release named “Baker.”
Automattic released WordPress 2.8.2 less than a month ago and bloggers commented on the accelerated pace of the updates. Well, the fact that performing the update is as easy as clicking the Update Now button from the admin panel, (a function that was improved for stability in 2.8.2) means that it can only be a good thing; less vulnerabilities = more happy.
