WordPress 2.6.3 Patches Snoopy Library

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

WordPressShortly after the release of WordPress 2.6.2, the next version of WordPress 2.6.3 is now available for download. In Ryan’s blog, it was mentioned that a vulnerability was discovered in the Snoopy library.

This was found to be a low-risk vulnerability, and only affects two files in the WordPress installation. Hence, if you do not prefer to download the entire installation, you can over the 2 files below and replace them in their respective directories:

  1. wp-includes/class-snoopy.php
  2. wp-includes/version.php

The version number on your WordPress will not change; but that’s all it takes to patch the Snoopy library issue. The two files will patch the library file as well as update the WordPress version.

Download Software
WordPress 2.6.3 [tar.gz version]
WordPress 2.6.3 [zip version]
