Happy Halloween! 

WordPress 4.8.3 has just been released. It is a security release, and the Wordfence team recommends you update WordPress core immediately to this version.

If you have not disabled WP's auto-updating feature, your site should update automatically within the next 24 hours. You can find the official announcement on

I also recommend you check out Anthony Ferrara's detailed post regarding the security issue that this WordPress core release fixes. Anthony is the security researcher who originally reported the issue. He also provides technical detail on the vulnerability.

Please act now and update all your Wordpress installations.
