Update Wordpress Now.

If you run a Wordpress site or have clients on Wordpress, update the site(s) now to version 4.8.3 to protect against a known (and now public) vulnerability.

The quick story: Engineer Anthony Ferrara found a bug in Wordpress that makes it vulnerable to a common attack (SQL injection). Wordpress tried to fix the issue in version 4.8.2 but that actually made the issue worse AND broke a lot of third-party plug-ins so they rushed to publish another update – 4.8.3.
