  1. This update was really unexpected.. though this update seems to be only for those
    who have multi author blogs or is it for every one?

      Hello Harsh,

      Good to see you back! Yes the update is basically for multi-author blogs as the problem is an XSS vulnerability in Press This found under Tools and an issue with sanitizing uploaded file names that can be exploited in certain Apache configurations. So you can be rest assured that these exploits can only be exploited by a registered, logged in users with posting rights only and not from outside.

      But you know its better to be updated and safe than feel sorry later.
