As usual, WordPress developers have released the next version of WordPress 2.8.5, in an attempt to improve security on the 2.8.x family releases.
There is no new features released in this version, but bug fixes are included in this release.
Some of the changes include:
- * A fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen.
- * Removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated.
- * Switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including Admins.
- * Retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.
