Security researchers have found a vulnerability issue with the latest WordPress platform and WordPress has issued a security fix in its 4.2.2 update. As we have mentioned recently, it is important that you update both your WordPress platform and all of your plugins immediately in order to patch any breaks in the code that can allow your WordPress site to be attacked.
The 4.2.2 WordPress security update fixes 13 different vulnerability bugs that allowed anonymous users the ability to compromise a website. If you have not updated your site to the latest WordPress version and you have outdated plugins, we urge you to please updates as soon as possible to protect your website.
It is vital to BACKUP your website first before updating the WordPress platform and any plugins. Sometimes an updated plugin will become incompatible with other updated programs and take your site down. A good backup will allow the web developer to research the problem and re-install elements of the old backup in order to bring your site back up from a crash.
