WordPress Cloud Website Hosting Original source article by Peter Wilson from Security – WordPress News

As of December 1, 2022 the WordPress Security Team will no longer provide security updates for WordPress versions 3.7 through 4.0.

These versions of WordPress were first released eight or more years ago so the vast majority of WordPress installations run a more recent version of WordPress. The chances this will affect your site, or sites, is very small.

If you are unsure if you are running an up-to-date version of WordPress, please log in to your site’s dashboard. Out of date versions of WordPress will display a notice that looks like this:

WordPress update notice: "WordPress 6.0.2 is available! Pleaes update now."

In WordPress versions 3.8 – 4.0, the version you are running is displayed in the bottom of the “At a Glance” section of the dashboard. In WordPress 3.7 this section is titled “Right Now”.

"At a Glance" section of the WordPress dashboard. The final line includes the exact version of WordPress the site is running.

The Make WordPress Security blog has further details about the process to end support.
