I applied a few updates to the site’s plugins this evening and deleted a few seemingly spam registrations. There’s a few more updates that need to be applied but I wanted to warn folks first.
An update to WordPress itself to 4.9.3. The site might go down for a few minutes sometime next week.
We’ve been running with a discontinued SPAM filter and the fake registrations are starting to get annoying. There’s an alternate filter that will require a bit more during new user registration, but I think it will be worth the hassle. I’ll do this after testing with the new version of WordPress.
That’s all for now. For those in warmer climates, safety fast!
