WordPress 4.4.1 is now available.
This is a security release for all previous versions and WordPress strongly encourages everyone to update sites immediately.
WordPress versions 4.4 and earlier are affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability that could allow a site to be compromised. This was reported by Crtc4L.
What You Need to Do

- Contact us to back up your site (files and database) and update your site as a one-off service. See all Website Maintenance and Security services.
