WordPress 4.7.3 Released

WordPress 4.7.3 has been released.  This is a security release and it is recommended that all sites upgrade.

Full details for WordPress 4.7.3 can be found on the WordPress blog.

Sites managed by Omega should update to 4.7.3 automatically.  Please make sure that your site’s plugins are remaining up to date by going to the Dashboard > Updates.

Out-of-date plugins and unused plugins increase your site’s attack surface.  To minimize potential threats, disable and delete any unused plugins, and make sure that any plugins you do use are up to date at all times.

If your site is compromised, you’ll see your site showing evidence of the Pharma Hack (ads and links to prescription medications) and general sluggishness caused by your site “phoning home” to get new spam to show on your page.
