This is old news but I just logged into my Google’s Webmasters account and got this message that I should update my WordPress blogs (the ones not updated yet) to the latest version of WordPress and the ones connected to my Webmasters account.

I must say that I was quite surprised by this message and I’ll make sure in the future I login into Google’s Webmasters tool to check for any other “surprises”.

Have you seen this message before?
