The WordPress team has been quick to act on a vulnerability in the Snoopy library that was announced today. 2.6.
Two weeks back, Matt announced that Automattic is testing WordPress.com ads on post and tag pages. I don't spend much time on any WordPress.
WordPress 2.6.2 was released yesterday in order to fix the bugs due to SQL Column Truncation and the weakness of mt_rand().
Considering the numerous threats that we are subject to online ranging from viruses and trojans to computer hijacking, security software has become a part and parcel of our daily life, be it the inbuilt Windows Firewall or more expensive paid solutions for antivirus software or anti-spyware software. I stumbled across DriveSentry the other day. DriveSentry is a free data protection software for Windows XP and Windows Vista.
WordPress 2.6.1 was released two days back.
