Title: WordPress Security Alert - March 6, 2017
Post by: Jason on March 06, 2017, 05:15:49 pm
WordPress has released a security update today that everyone should install immediately.

Given the severity, US Homeland Security has released a post (https://www.us-cert.gov/ncas/current-activity/2017/03/06/WordPress-Releases-Security-Update) today about it. 

If you have auto-updates set on your WP install you may have already received the upgrade automatically.  Most of the sites I personally manage were updated already earlier today.  If not, I'd suggest you do that asap.

An email alert has been sent to all of our customers approximately 10 minutes ago with a link to this thread.

I've added this as a Client Area Announcement and tweeted it as well.
