New WordPress 4.8.2 Featuring Nine Security Fixes WordPress 4.8 was an awesome invention of the WordPress community. With the help   of   this   version,   WordPress   development   companies   resolved   almost   all   the errors and bugs found in the previous versions. But the latest  WordPress 4.8.2  is now available with top nine security fixes that will enhance the productivity of your website built with  WordPress development. Though it is a minor upgrade along with a minor security release and hence if you are using the WordPress, it will be automatically updated within 24 hours if you have enabled the auto update in your platform.

This WordPress update includes solution to fix $wpdb­>prepare() to secure against the   SQL   injection   attacks.  Though   WP  core   isn’t   vulnerable   to   the  SQL  injection attacks directly, there are certain plugins and themes that may become vulnerable depending entirely on the way the above function is used. The   maintenance   of   this   updated   WordPress   version   contains   the   solution   for various   errors   such   as   Cross   Site   Scripting   (XSS).   It   fixes   the   errors   caused   in oEmbed discovery, The visual editor, The plugin editor, and in template names. Related: WordPress 4.8: New Key Features WordPress contains a pretty slick operation for the security of the third party plugins and themes is the finest feature in the recently released updates of the WordPress security. It is important to crystallize the  $wpdb­>prepare()  because  the biggest defense


against SQL   injection   attacks   is   to   make   sure   that   SQL   query   gets   escaped   in   a correct manner. This will stop  the database engine from treating user supplied data as code  and hence stops hackers from corrupting the queries to own ends. In order to complete your escaping, prepare is the best way! These security fixes will affect all the versions before 4.8. WordPress states that only 40%   of   the   WordPress   websites   uses   the   official   and   supported   version   of WordPress. Avoiding updating of the software is like giving a chance to the criminal to ruin your website.   The   existence   of   the   vulnerabilities   is   public.   When   the   software   is   not upgraded regularly, it becomes more likely to get exploited. It is more important to update to 4.8.2 as soon as possible.
