HOW-TO, WordPress

If you are running WordPress 1.5.x, your blog may be vulnerable. If you do not wish to upgrade to 2.0.2 but still want to ensure that you have the security fixes in place then this guide is for you. Includes a step by step tutorial along with pictures.

    I’ve not seen the linked article, but I think it’s important to note that two people in the WP community have put together some security fixes and are submitting them to the devs and assuming that they are found to be adequate, they will be merged into the core and you will see a version 1.5.3 be available. This is not meant to dissuade anyone from using Ajay’s information…I’m just providing some addition info for folks to follow up with.

    As Craig as mentioned, this is correct.

    These two persons are indeed keeping track for security fixes and ensuring that these get fixed for 1.5 as well.

    I think a 1.5.3 should be available in the near future.

    Can someone tell me WHAT the security fixes are for. What is insecure about WP 1.5.x at the moment that I need to patch?

  4. Ajay D'Souza (39 comments.) says:

    I will admit that even I am not sure in detail of all the fixes.

    This comment will give you a list of all the files that have been changed.

    My old blogs are on WP 2.0 and new ones on 2.5, I find the new WP admin area very disappointing, some new features are good but overall not a good update :(
