If you use WordPress.org as the platform for your self-hosted blog or website and the Jetpack plugin is installed and active, then you need to take action immediately and update that plugin!
Yesterday, a critical security update was released for Jetpack. To ensure your WordPress site is secure, log into your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the updates page, and click the link to upgrade to Jetpack 2.9.3. That's all you have to do.
The security lapse allowed attackers to access a WordPress site's back-end controls and publish posts on the live blog. The security update fixes the problem.
For all of the details about the security issues, check out the article about it on the Jetpack website.
If you use a managed WordPress host like Synthesis, Pressable, or WP Engine, this update has likely already been taken care of for you, but be sure to confirm that it has been done. If you don't use the Jetpack plugin, then you don't have to do anything.
