Two hours ago WordPress 2.6.2 was committed. It's yet to be announced on the Development Blog but anyway, this is a very urgent mandatory upgrade. Let's all salute the responsiveness of the core team: version 2.6.2 was released about 5 hours after a critical bug affecting 2.6.1 was filed.

    Thanks for the heads up through twitter on this upgrade Ozh. All done and dusted, just as I like it.

    I am happy with current 2.6.1 version but WordPress 2.6.2 contains a handful of bug fixes. I’ve just upgraded my blog to this new.

    Are you talking about the ticket (#7710) that was already fixed a few days after the security post referenced was made? The fix really isn't mandatory unless you allow users to register.

    Jacob Santos » this one, yes. I know it affects only blog with registration, but there has to be a lot of single user blogs with this option left enabled
