We will be applying security updates to the free servers which will require a brief restart. Expected downtime is 5 to 10 minutes while they reboot into a new kernel.
All free hosting servers have now been updated to PHP 5.5, with 5.4 and 5.3 available as fallbacks. Additionally, we will be dropping support for PHP 5.3 by the end of August, as it has been End Of Life for a while now.
Please see the PHP 5.5 Migration guide on PHP.net: http://www.php.net/migration55
And instructions for how to switch back to an older version at http://community.x10hosting.com/threads/changing-php-versions.189018/
We are currently working to restore service to XO3. The httpd binary/configuration has broken, and we are attempting to restore it to a working version. We appreciate your patience, and apologize for any inconvenience. We will update you once we have more information.
A vulnerability to the TimThumb Wordpress Plugin has been released today. TimThumb is a small php script for cropping, zooming and resizing web images (jpg, png, gif). Perfect for use on blogs and other applications. Developed for use in the WordPress theme Mimbo Pro, and since used in many other WordPress themes.
We advise you to make sure that all plugins that are in use on your Wordpress websites are up to date, and to also make sure Wordpress Core is updated as well.
