Security alert on plug in
A quick post to let you know about a security issue I just read about.
I get a regular email about online security issues. This one had an alert about a word press Plug in called 'wpDiscuz' a commenting plugin apparently. One version Isvulnerable and allows hackers to upload files to websites they target.
Researchers found the problem and told the developers in June. They promised to fix the flaw with the next version but the fix didn't path the security hole.
A brand new version was released on July 23rd 2020 and that one is secure.
Anyone with the plug in is advised to make it a priority to update to the newest version.
I don't have this plug in but am letting everyone know in case there is anyone here who does have it.
