Recap of Vulnerabilities in September 2016

When compared to the vulnerability roundups of July and August 2016, September was a slow one with just 22 reported vulnerabilities. The reason for such a drop in the total number of vulnerabilities is not because things are getting better, but because in both the previous months there were a lot of vulnerabilities which were identified during the Summer of Pwnage 2016. This month we have:

  • 2 WordPress Core vulnerabilities
  • 20 WordPress plugin vulnerabilities
