Automatic updates without permission

Description

Hi all,

I have received several e-mails about plugins updating automatically. They say: "[mydomain/site] Some plugins were automatically updated".

Now, first of all I haven't enabled a single automatic update on any of my sites. On top of that, I have "define( 'WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE', false );" in every wp-config.php file on every site.

Makes me think this must be core issue, since the Automatic Update was introduced just while back for individual plugins. Only sites affecting this are 5.5 sites.

The "funny" thing is, the only plugin that is updating automatically is Autoptimize. Still, can't see this as Autoptimize problem,.. could be wrong though sure :)

Thanks,

  • Yorkki

Aah, right. Not sure what to think about that, but I guess it's ok. Just have seen so many automatic updates break sites, that needed to report this. But ok, I will live with this I guess :) . Thanks for your fast reply. - Yorkki

Come to think of it, this is all good. Urgent security issues pushed through -> safer web. Thanks and have a great day! - Yorkki
