    We received two emails over the holiday allegedly from WordPress with this subject line: WordPress data base upgrade required! (and marked High Priority). ARE THESE LEGIT (really from WordPress) OR are they spam/malware??

    From: WordPress.org <lsebolino@mybluelight.com>


    Database Upgrade Required

    Your WordPress database is out-of-date, and must be upgraded before 30-Nov-2013.

    The upgrade process may take a while, so please be patient.

    They are not from wordpress.org.

    Why are you using an old copy of WordPress? Were you aware that your site is currently running a very real risk of being hacked? You need to upgrade WordPress asap.
