    Default Time to Upgrade to WordPress 2.8.1

    A reminder to upgrade your WordPress blogs to WordPress 2.8.1. It fixes a vulnerability which allows unprivileged users to view plugins configuration pages and, with some plugins, to modify plugin options and inject JavaScript code.

    Not all plugins are vulnerable to this problem, however WordPress advises that we upgrade to 2.8.1 to be safe.

    2.8.1 also fixes a number of bugs.

    That's right, it's time to update your WordPress blogs again. WordPress has released a security patch that fixes an XSS vulnerability:

    This could be exploited to redirect you away from the admin to another site
    Here's the official announcement about WordPress 2.8.2.

    Since the introduction of the automatic upgrade option, I find it's not such a big deal to upgrade so often.

    Apparently not everything was fixed with 2.8.2. Therefore, 2.8.3 has now been released.

    Since this is a security release, upgrading is highly recommended.

    Are you doing a manual or automatic install?

    Why do you need to access the .htaccess file - are you trying to change the file permissions? Is the .htaccess file not showing via ftp?
