We have become aware of a critical security vulnerability in very commonly used plug-ins for the popular WordPress blogging platform that present a risk to our customers. All customers using WordPress with either the W3 Total Cache plug-in or the WP Super Cache plug-in are encouraged to update their plug-ins as soon as possible.
