Plugin vulnerabilities pose a huge security risk
Plugins and themes accounted for 99.42% of reported WordPress vulnerabilities last year. It is also a growing risk – in 2021 the number of reported vulnerabilities increased by 150%.
It is common for WordPress websites to have vulnerable components – and often these are left unpatched. In the whitepaper mentioned we estimated that around 42% of sites have at least one vulnerable component in them.
With WordPress powering more than 40% of the web, this partnership will have a significant impact on driving awareness of these security issues – and on making the web a safer place for everybody.
