The WordPress Ecosystem is Becoming More Secure with Responsible Disclosure Becoming More Common

The Wordfence 2022 State of WordPress Security Report was released on January 24th, 2023. One area that we reviewed in this report were the vulnerabilities disclosed in 2022. Keeping in mind that some vulnerabilities affected multiple plugins, themes, and WordPress core, a total of 2,370 vulnerabilities were reported in 2022. The top five vulnerability categories were Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), authorization bypass, SQL Injection (SQLi), and information disclosure. While the statistics sum up what was in the report, the story does not end there.
