Important WordPress 4.9.7 Security and Maintenance Release

Last Update: July 06, 2018

WordPress have just released an important 4.9.7 security and maintenance update because of a media issue in the earlier 4.9.6 version that could allow a user to delete files outside of the uploads folder.

If you don't have automatic security and maintenance updates activated you're strongly advised to update immediately.

Seventeen other bugs have also been fixed with this update.
