If you have not already updated your WordPress website(s) to WordPress 4.7.2, you should do so immediately. While three WordPress security vulnerability fixes were disclosed last week, the disclosure of an additional security fix in WordPress 4.7.2 was announced yesterday.

WordPress 4.7.2 was released as an auto-update, but you still need to confirm your sites have been updated successfully. You’ll find the WordPress 4.7.2 update available now from your WordPress dashboard.
