Description

I just received the following automatic notification about CDev; maybe any vulnerabilities don't matter because the site is password protected?

Please update your site at http://cdev.gc.cuny.edu to WordPress 4.0.1.

Updating is easy and only takes a few moments:

Keeping your site updated is important for security. It also makes the internet a safer place for you and your readers.

cdev is not a particular concern, but the Commons will get upgraded to 4.0.1 today. I will hijack this ticket for that purpose.

Updated in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/41c5dcf6b19f29361530f517f52d987cff3aec35.

I'll roll this out to cdev at some point when it makes sense, but as you note, cdev is behind a password and so is not vulnerable to the XSS vulnerabilities that 4.0.1 is primarily intended to protect against.
