Yesterday Ryan posted on WordPress.org official blog about the release of WordPress 2.3.2. It has been marked as urgent security release.

Here’s what he wrote on his blog:

WordPress 2.3.2 is an urgent security release that fixes a bug that can be used to expose your draft posts. 2.3.2 also suppresses some error messages that can give away information about your database table structure and limits and stops some information leaks in the XML-RPC and APP implementations. Get 2.3.2 now to protect your blog from these disclosures.

As a little bonus, 2.3.2 allows you to define a custom DB error page. Place your custom template at wp-content/db-error.php. If WP has a problem connecting to your database, this page will displayed rather than the default error message.

Interestingly, now we have the option of having a custom database error message. Though that should be a rare occurrence!

Do upgrade as soon as possible.
