A critical security bug has been found in WordPress, which should be fixed by installing WordPress version 4.8.3.

A security error was found in the content management system, which creates a situation where malicious hackers could take control of the website and, for example, post their own content there. To avoid this, everyone with a website running on WordPress should upgrade to version 4.8.3 immediately.

In addition to updating WordPress itself, you should also update all the interfaces that are installed on the page.

The upgrade option should appear on the WordPress desktop, where it can be conveniently installed. However, before every update, it is also wise to make a backup just in case.
