    Many of you probably are using the All In One SEO Pack plugin for your wordpress sites. If you are, you might want to update right away or look into switching to Yost SEO or something else and also doing a scan of your site. Major exploits were found with the plugin recently.

    Great idea. There appears to be a plugin to do the trick......I wonder if it updates itself too ;-) Just search for plugin updater and its one of the first I am trying it now on one of my sites. It has a manual mode and you can set it just to email when there is an update to be sure nothing gets broken....
    This plugin updates WordPress core and the plugins to the recent versions. You can also use the auto mode or manual mode for updating and set email notifications. There is also a premium version of the plugin with more useful features available.

    I use Wordpress SEO by Yoast, and find it suitable for my needs. Before, I used All in One, but since then, haven't looked back. Why not try this plugin?
