The State of Wordpress Security

blog.ripstech.com | Dec. 19, 2016 | 21 min read

Great research on the state of WordPress plugin security. Interesting finding is that if a plugin has any vulnerabilities it tends to have a lot of them.

What? How real is this? They scanned all of the plugins in the WordPress repository and large numbers of them have security vulnerabilities. So they reported those vulnerabilities so they could be fixed, right? Why not?

Or is their scanner looking for patterns, the hits may or may not be real vulnerabilities, and the larger the plugin the more possible matches?
