WordPress Weakness Makes Sites Not Hosted on Our Server Vulnerable to HackersLeave a Comment
Security Vulnerability Affects Many Major Plugins.
WordPress specific hosting, like we provide, will automatically update the WordPress software as soon as new versions are available. All sites hosted on other servers should have their code checked for the weakness immediately!
Last week WordPress unleashed a rapid series of updates, all to fix a cross-site scripting weakness in the code. The weakness was caused by an error in WordPress documentation that misinformed plugin authors and resulted in many plugins being coded incorrectly.
Here is a list of major plugins that contain the weakness and should be updated immediately:
- WordPress SEO
- Google Analytics by Yoast
- All In one SEO
- Gravity Forms
- Multiple Plugins from Easy Digital Downloads
- Download Monitor
- Related Posts for WordPress
- My Calendar
- P3 Profiler
- Multiple iThemes products including Builder and Exchange
- Ninja Forms
