New vulnerability affects millions of WordPress sites
A recent vulnerability was discovered in the WordPress core PHPMailer that would allow a hacker to execute their own code on a website and take it over.
A patch is being worked on right now and we expect a fairly quick response to this very dangerous exploit.
As usual we expect that any core updates will result in an avalanche of plugin and theme updates as they try to remain compatible. As we are still seeing rolling updates from WP 4.7 we expect things to become hectic.
If you would like some assistance managing this process please contact us.
If not, please update your site as soon as the updates become available – of course remember to backup first. – Stay Vigilant!
