I just got an email from my web host saying that there's a security hole with the WP thumbnailing library. Could you please give me more info on this or if this theme will be upgrated to get rid of that security hole? What do you suggest? (See below). Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
The security hole exists in a Thumbnailing library, called TimThumb. This library is commonly used in Wordpress themes, and is used to create thumbnails and link images from other photo sharing websites.
This security exploit exists in a library that is used in Wordpress themes. It is not part of the core Wordpress. Even if you have your core Wordpress script up-to-date, you may still be vulnerable. It is also important to note that this is not a security issue only with Wordpress. Other scripts may make use of the TimThumb library, but Wordpress is by far the most common use.
