How are you faring with WordPress 5.0? Have you updated yet, or are you still holding off? Either way, you should pay attention to a new security release. WordPress 5.0.1 is out to fix a number of security issues. However, these issues also affect older versions of WordPress, so the core team has created a separate WordPress 4.9.9 release so that people who haven’t updated to 5.0 yet can still secure their sites.

WordPress versions 5.0 and earlier are affected by the several bugs, which are fixed in version 5.0.1. Updated versions of WordPress 4.9 and older releases are also available, for users who have not yet updated to 5.0.
