WordPress security alert: version 5.2.4 has been released, along with security updates for earlier branches.
WordPress 5.2.4 fixes six security vulnerabilities, so if your website has not automatically upgraded to a secure version, please upgrade your WordPress installation as soon as possible. You can read more about the specific security issues in the WordPress announcement.
WordPress updates automatically to the secure version on a branch in most cases. If your website has not updated, or you aren’t sure, check in with your trusted web developer to ensure your website remains secure. Note to our clients: if your installation is not secure, we will reach out to you to address it.
