Critical security vulnerability, again? I thought we were past that stage long time ago.

Yeah you are right, I guess as long as there is active development there will be things like these.

Vladimir, security for software never "ends." It is always an ongoing process.

Another Update with another bug. This time incompatibility with Chrome.

Why WP Team do not make more and better test before launching updates?


My solution.

1) Installed "Disable All WordPress Updates" plugin on all my sites.

2) Wait 10 days before update WP checking on line for problems like this one and asking to theme and plugin developper compatibility with new version.

AFTER

3) check on local

4) may be update :-)

And obviosuly a lot of time losed.

Bored with this WP

This is a really important security update and we updated all of our sites yesterday. I am FLABBERGASTED as to why anyone would ever think downgrading WordPress is a secure idea. You could be risking hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to your users' privacy, etc...

Security issue is about Contributor, Author or Subscriber role that can compromise a site.

Prefere to wait until the problem with Chrome incompatibility, that in my point of view is worst, is resolved.
