Default WordPress update stopped WordPress automatic updates from working. So update now

This article is from Graham Cluley:

WordPress update stopped WordPress automatic updates from working. So update now

GOT THAT?

It's only Wednesday, and it's been a busy week for WordPress updates.

On Monday, WordPress version 4.9.3 was released. On Tuesday, it was rapidly followed by version 4.9.4.

Why the rapid release of a new edition? Well, it turns out that version 4.9.3 of the popular website CMS didn't just fix 34 bugs. It also introduced a honking great big bug that means sites that support automatic background updates will fail to update automatically.

Yeucch!

An article from Sophos' Naked Security about this WordPress update:

More from Sophos' Naked Security:

WordPress denial-of-service attacks – how real is the problem? [VIDEO] – Naked Security
Quote:
We wrote yesterday about a WordPress bug where an automatic update broke automatic updating, but that’s not the only security drama in the WordPress ecosystem at the moment.

There are claims that a bug known as CVE-2018-6389 “could put 29% of the world’s websites at risk of a denial-of-service attack”, and other similarly heady claims.
