Easy Updates Manager 8.0.5 has been released and includes a small numbers of tweaks and minor improvements (including tweaks to improve compatibility with other extensions, and to improve the clarity of messages going into Slack, and a security fix.

The security defect in previous versions (present since at least version 8.0.1 in October 30th 2018), allowed a logged-in user on the site, if he possessed sufficient skills, to tweak some (but not all) settings. For example, he could adjust the settings for whether automatic (background) theme updates should occur, or not.

We recommend that all users update.

Easy Updates Manager is currently helping more than 200,000 users keep their sites up to date and bug-free automatically. Easy Updates Manager is highly customizable and you can choose what to update and what not to update.
