WordPress recently announced the release of WordPress 3.7 and at the time of this post there has been well over 5,000,000 installs. With this release the WordPress software has become even more secure due to the new automated background security update feature. So what exactly does this new feature do for you?
WordPress Security Update Process
Historically when there was a known vulnerability in WordPress the parent company, Autommattic, would issue a security notice prompting the website admin to update to the latest secure version. While typically only taking a few clicks to implement the security update, this new feature will automatically patch the software in the background. Thus making WordPress one of the more secure content management systems on the web.
