Serious vulnerability in JetPack, update now! • WordPress Help

Just released version 2.9.3 of the JetPack plugin that solves a severe vulnerability in the module " Share ", the utility Sharedaddy ]

The vulnerability code is CVE-2014-0173 a serious security hole in the file sharedaddy.php that, as far as I could read in forums security, because in the change log does not say anything, you can allow SQL injections, so do not even think about it, update right now you have it waiting for you in the WordPress administration.

Just point, to demonstrate the severity of the vulnerability, how important it is not that the JetPack team is sending personalized emails to all the sites that use it to update it.

JetPack 1.6 do not update! • WordPress Help

Just released version 1.6 of JetPack which introduces many improvements to widgets, shortcodes and carousel, and also updates the ShareDaddy module in charge of sharing buttons in social networks.

Well, there's the problem .

It's true that it improves the buttons, CSS , adds services like Pinterest but it turns out that it has a bug – that I've already reported – whereby if you share something on Twitter it adds something like "via @nombredetuwebcom" . 19659003] So, here, that the domain is "", if I update and share something on Twitter, after the title and link of the entry, I would add "via @ayudawordpresscom". And the worst thing, unlike with JetPack Extras is that you can not configure the Twitter account of "via".

Come on, a truño, which I hope will be fixed soon.

I said, as long as they do not solve it better do not update or your readers will think that your Twitter account is "@tudominiocom".

Buttons to share on

A while ago I discovered a new option in the settings of my blogs on : Share . This new screen on your desktop allows – finally – to offer a simple system for your readers to share your tickets in the most common social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit), in addition to printing, send by email or re-publish your entries with the controversial system we talked about at the time .

The system used is the Sharedaddy plugin and you just have to drag and drop the icons that you want to offer and, under an icon of " Share " will appear in your entries or where you define, simple and effective.

This new feature, so long expected, will be a tremendous boost for blogs hosted on because it greatly facilitates the task of promoting content, something that Automattic is working on a lot lately, and we congratulate ourselves for that.
