Freeola Tweeted earlier today about a security issue for Wordpress users. It also gets a mention on the Service Status page.

But I thought it was also worth posting here.
I checked a forum regulars website and noticed they need to update...!

Here's the Status page text: I corrected the spelling! ;¬)

Customers who use Wordpress to manage their website(s) are strongly encouraged to update their installation to the latest version of Wordpress, which is 4.7.2 as of 10/02/2017.
A security vulnerability in all earlier versions of the software make Wordpress site susceptible to being compromised.
Please see the https://make.wordpress.org/core/2017/02/01/disclosure-of-additional-security-fix-in-wordpress-4-7-2/

This is a security vulnerability with the Wordpress software and not with Freeola's hosting.

Hmmm...
