WordPress 2.6.3 now available
WordPress 2.6.3 has just been released which fixes a low risk vulnerability in the Snoopy library. Snoopy is currently used to fetch the feeds shown in the Dashboard.
The new version is available at the WordPress download page. If you don’t want to download the whole release to get the security fix, you can download the following two files and copy them over your 2.6.2 installation.
If you have ssh access to your blog, here are the commands to update by just replacing the two files:
cd ~/public_html/wp-includes/ wget http://trac.wordpress.org/export/9310/tags/2.6.3/wp-includes/class-snoopy.php wget http://trac.wordpress.org/export/9310/tags/2.6.3/wp-includes/version.php mv class-snoopy.php.1 class-snoopy.php;mv version.php.1 version.php
