Wordpress security updates


Wordpress shopping carts – security issues

Wordpress CMS securityThe latest versions of WordPress shopping carts appear to suffer from remote SQL injection and shell upload vulnerabilities according to a recent post (dated 3rd January 2013) on the Internet.

Last month Wordpress themselves removed a popular Amazon plugin as this has serious security issues. At the same time 5 other popular plugins had important security updates implemented – these need downloading to any website using them.

It is really important that any Wordpress site has regular maintenance and security audits on all plugins.
