Last Updated on January 19, 2022

Vulnerable plugins and themes are the #1 reason WordPress websites get hacked. The weekly WordPress Vulnerability Report powered by WPScan covers recent WordPress plugin, theme, and core vulnerabilities, and what to do if you run one of the vulnerable plugins or themes on your website.

Each vulnerability will have a severity rating of LowMediumHigh, or Critical. Responsible disclosure and reporting of vulnerabilities is an integral part of keeping the WordPress community safe. New in this report: vulnerabilities are now listed in order by the number of active installs, rather than the date of the disclosure.

Please share this post with your friends to help get the word out and make WordPress safer for everyone!

WordPress Core Vulnerabilities

The latest version of WordPress core was released on January 6, 2022 as a short-cycle security release. Because WordPress 5.8.3 is a security release, we recommend that you update all your sites immediately.

You can update to WordPress 5.8.3 by downloading from WordPress.org or visiting your WordPress admin dashboard > Updates and clicking Update Now.

If you have sites that have enabled automatic background updates, they should have already updated successfully. Just be sure to verify that all your WordPress sites are on WordPress 5.8.3.

Stay tuned for the release of WordPress 5.9 next week! See what’s new in WordPress 5.9 during a live webinar with iThemes Security lead developer and WordPress Core Committer, Timothy Jacobs. Join us live next Tuesday, January 25, 2022, @ 1:00 p.m. (CT) for the WordPress 5.9 Launch Event hosted by iThemes Training.
