Yesterday we learned of a potential security issue related to a few popular WordPress plugins. As a precautionary measure, we have scanned all VaultPress customer sites to check for the affected plugins.
We were able to remotely edit and secure the plugins on the majority of the VaultPress sites that had them installed, and we have notified all the sites we were able to fix that we’ve cleaned the plugins for them.
As noted on the WordPress.org blog, if you use AddThis, WPtouch, or W3 Total Cache and there’s a possibility you could have updated in the past day, make sure to visit your updates page and upgrade each to the latest version.
If you’d rather sit back and relax this summer instead of worrying about security threats, sign up for VaultPress today. We have a dedicated team of professional worriers who can take that burden off you.
