WordPress Vulnerability Report – May 17, 2023

This week, WordPress 6.2.1 was released — the first security and maintenance update for the 6.2 version line. This release patched 5 security vulnerabilities, including Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross-site request forgery (CSRF), and path traversal vulnerabilities. If you have your site set to auto-update point releases for WordPress core, your site is likely already protected. Still, it is good practice to verify that the update has been applied to protect your site. For a full review of these patches, you can review WordPress trac tickets for 6.2.1.
