A Vulnerability Discovered in WooCommerce Payments Could Put Your Store at Risk
On March 22, 2023, a vulnerability was discovered in WooCommerce Payments that could allow unauthorized admin access to impacted stores. While the issue has been mitigated for sites hosted on WordPress.com, Pressable, and WPVIP, those with WooCommerce Payments 4.8.0 and higher installed and activated on their site, that are not hosted on WordPress.com and which have not updated to a patched version, are still potentially vulnerable to this issue.
How to Ensure Your Site is Secure and Up-to-Date
To ensure that your site is secure and up-to-date, check for any available updates from the WP Admin dashboard. Once a secure version has been installed, check for any unexpected admin users or posts on your site, and update passwords for admin users, as well as any Payment Gateway and WooCommerce API keys used on your site. For those who need assistance with the upgrade process, ReVibe Digital offers services to help with WooCommerce upgrades, security hardening, performance optimisation, and more.
