This just in about WordPress and upcoming changes in support for earlier versions. If you have not updated the software you NEED to do so
WordPress announced a 3 month warning that it is halting all security updates on older installations (versions 3.7-4.0). The affected installations will display a permanent notice that cannot be dismissed. This begins December 1, 2022.
Anyone using these out of date versions of WordPress will put their sites at risk for hacking after the final date of support. The reason given for dropping security support is that the Core Development Team at WordPress can better focus on updating the latest versions without the burden of keeping older versions up to date.
Update or you will be at risk
So if you have not been updating to the latest WordPress version, we highly recommend that you do so fairly quickly.
