    Question about security updates

    Hi! I was wondering, is it possible to patch the latest security vulnerabilities in a Wordpress installation avoiding the updates to the newer versions and instead using the security updates for the operating system of the server?

    No - they are two totally separate areas where there are security holesto be patched.

    Your question is like asking if fixing a problem with your car will also fix the hole in your shoe so as to remove the need to get your shoe repaired.
