    Here is a list of major plugins that contain the weakness and should be updated immediately:

    • Jetpack
    • WordPress SEO
    • Google Analytics by Yoast
    • All In one SEO
    • Gravity Forms
    • Multiple Plugins from Easy Digital Downloads
    • UpdraftPlus
    • WP-E-Commerce
    • WPTouch
    • Download Monitor
    • Related Posts for WordPress
    • My Calendar
    • P3 Profiler
    • Give
    • Multiple iThemes products including Builder and Exchange
    • Broken-Link-Checker
    • Ninja Forms
