WordPress.org today announced the immediate availability of WordPress 4.7.1. This is a security release for all previous versions and it’s strongly recommended to update your sites immediately. WordPress versions 4.7 and earlier are affected by eight security issues that may put your website at risk of being hacked.
While WordPress performs such releases automatically, it takes time to do it from their end. After all, WordPress powers millions of websites. If your site has not been updated automatically today, do it yourself if you are confident enough or contact us for help.
