WordPress issued a very important update recently , version 4.7.2, that contained some important security updates.
Anyone using WordPress to manage their website should ensure you have updated to the latest version immediately.

For any client who is subscribed to our WordPress Support packages, we have already updated your site.
As always, we strongly advise that all plugins and themes are also updated. We are seeing WordPress sites being hacked quite regularly at the moment, due to running out-dated versions. This means the site will be offline, could be used to spread spam, and will lose position in Search Engines.

Update 11.40: Server MX7 is back online now and all queued emails will be delivered shortly
