WordPress 2.9.2 Released: Security Release for Trash


20080420-7 (by kwbridge)

You may have noticed the WordPress update in your WordPress admin for version 2.9.2.

This is a security release but isn’t one to worry about unless you have multiple authors on your blog and particularly if anyone is allowed to register as an author.

And it can be an issue if you leave “sensitive” posts in the trash, which is a new feature of the WordPress 2.9 series.

Basically any logged in user can view posts left in the trash. Even posts that they didn’t write.

And if this will be an issue for you, then you definitely want to install the patch as soon as you can.

I am the only user on this site so I’m the only one who can view the trash or any deleted posts. I will install the update but I don’t see it as an issue on my own site.
