2 Million Users Affected by Vulnerability in All in One SEO Pack

On July 10, 2020, our Threat Intelligence team discovered a vulnerability in All In One SEO Pack, a WordPress plugin installed on over 2 million sites. This flaw allowed authenticated users with contributor level access or above the ability to inject malicious scripts that would be executed if a victim accessed the wp-admin panel’s ‘all posts’ page.

We reached out to the plugin’s team the same day of discovery on July 10, 2020 and a patch was released just a few days later on July 15, 2020.

This is considered a medium severity security issue that, as with all XSS vulnerabilities, can result in complete site takeover and other severe consequences. We strongly recommend immediately updating to the latest version of this plugin. At the time of writing, that is version 3.6.2 of All in One SEO Pack.

Sometimes staying up-to-date with website site security is a full-time job.

Recently, a WordPress XSS exploit was discovered in a semi-popular WooCommerce add-on.

The vulnerability was made public once a patch had been released, but the plugin needs to be updated for the patch to be applied.

Watch today’s video for more details. XSS is short for Cross-Site Scripting which is a fairly common way for sites to be hacked.
