MainWP Support Updates

As we go into the final quarter of 2020, I wanted to touch base with the support projects we’ve been working on and testing throughout the year.

Not Ready For WordPress 5 But You Still Need Security Updates For The WordPress 4

A few days after the WordPress 5.0 release, the first security update (5.0.1) has been released which resolves vulnerabilities found in all previous versions of WordPress starting with 3.7. These vulnerabilities allow authors to alter metadata and delete files that they weren’t authorized to.
