FeedBurner FeedSmith Plugin Security Update

I was browsing the FeedBurner blog this morning and noticed that they have released a new version of the FeedBurner FeedSmith Plugin. If you are using the FeedBurner FeedSmith Plugin you should get the newest version to protect your WordPress blog from a potential cross-site request forgery security hole.

Here are the easy instructions from FeedBurner on how to update (in case you need them)

  1. Download version 2.3 of the plugin.
  2. Sign in to your WordPress admin control panel.
  3. Under Plugins, locate the current FeedSmith plugin, and click “Deactivate.”
  4. Copy the plugin file, FeedBurner_FeedSmith_Plugin.php into your default WordPress plugin directory, wp-content/plugins/
  5. Reactivate the plugin by logging in to your WordPress administration area, clicking Plugins, then clicking Activate at the end of the “FeedBurner FeedSmith” row.

Happy FeedBurning!
