Do I Need To Upgrade WordPress.com?

Unfortunately, I bet this is a common question. I should browse the WordPress.com forums to see how many people are inquiring about the recent security upgrade.

I have read that there is an important security update for the WordPress blogging software. Do I need to upgrade my blog www.anopensource.wordpress.com, if so how can I do this?

  1. Erm, it would be nice if you answered it to let those who Google that know. :)

  2. Maybe the dot com can do a little more PR work in letting their users know it’s taken care of. :)

  3. Lol, that has to be the ultimate n00b question to ask.

    I can totally see how they’d get confused though. To many people “WordPress” is WordPress.com, but of course it is not. “WordPress” is the software which WordPress.com happens to use.

  4. @Ryan McCue – Well, I did leave the link in there in case people want to find out. But thanks to the comments, no need to tell people what they should be doing heh.

    @Andrea_R – No matter how much PR you put into this, both of them using WordPress in their name is going to cause problems. This is just a permanent side effect to the branding nightmare.
