WordPress 2.6.3 Released, Fixes A Vulnerability in Snoopy

The WordPress team has released WordPress 2.6.3 which fixes a vulnerability found in Snoopy, a popular library to communicate with http and https protocols from PHP.

The vulnerability is low risk, however it is better to upgrade to the latest version. However the upgrade includes changes to only two files, which you can easily download and upload to your FTP site.

Download the files below, to upgrade to WordPress 2.6.3.

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

Important Note: Only upload the files if you using the WordPress version 2.6.2 currently, if you are using a earlier version, perform a full upgrade to WordPress 2.6.3.
