Next week, we are expecting WordPress 5.9 to be released around January 25th.  As it becomes available, CU*Answers Web Services will begin upgrading sites through our automated hosting platform.  We’ll be watching sites for any problems during the upgrades, but do not anticipate any.  And we do not expect our clients or your members to notice.

This WordPress release includes the usual array of security and performance updates.  It also introduces some new features as WordPress moves towards a full site editing experience.  CU*Answers Web Services is looking forward to using some of these new features in our new theme designs.

Review a list of new features in WordPress 5.9

The website hosting arm of GoDaddy recently announced a data breach of credentials affecting 1.2 million of their WordPress sites.

Coverage has been everywhere, but here are some links:

TechCrunch, WordFence, and the SEC.

Please note, this does not affect your WordPress sites hosted with CU*Answers Web Services.  This only affects certain web sites hosted at GoDaddy.

While CU*Answers Web Services does use GoDaddy for some domain name registrations, this incident did not affect the registrar functions, only their web hosting business.

GoDaddy said it’s reset customer WordPress passwords and private keys, and is in the process of issuing new SSL certificates.
