Hello friends, today I want to share about releasing the new version of the popular CMS, WordPress.

WordPress released its new version 5.2.4 on October 14, 2019. It is a short-cycle security release. This release fixes six security issues, which are:

  1. Creating Stored XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) using the Customizer.
  2. Creating Stored XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) to inject JavaScript (JS) into style (<style></style>) tags.
  3. Viewing unauthenticated posts.
  4. Poisoning the cache of JSON GET requests via the Vary: Origin header
  5. Faking server-side request in the way that URLs are validated, and
  6. Having a problem with referrer validation in the admin section

List of Updated Files in WordPress 5.2.4 release

  • /wp-includes/class-wp.php
  • /wp-includes/class-wp-query.php
  • /wp-includes/functions.php
  • /wp-includes/http.php
  • /wp-includes/pluggable.php
  • /wp-includes/rest-api.php

What will be the next major release of Word Press?

The next major release of WP will be 5.3 and scheduled to be released on November 12, 2019.
