WordPress update

May 27th, 2005

A security vulnerability has been discovered in WordPress and and update has been released. However, since this is a small issue you might want to fix it manually rather than reload a new version.

Open the file wp-includes/template-functions-category.php in a text editor like WordPad.
On line 103 (or thereabouts if you have made any modifications) find the following code:
function get_the_category_by_ID($cat_ID) {

Below that line add a new line of code:
$cat_ID = (int) $cat_ID;

Save the new file and upload.

Problem fixed!

Well done to the WordPress team for fixing that so quickly!
