Since we launched our WordPress vulnerability database in 2014, we have been lacking one important factor, vulnerability risk scores. This was partly due to not being able to decide on which risk scoring system to use, not having the time to implement the system, and not having the time to assign risk scores to new vulnerabilities, if the system was implemented.
Today we’re happy to announce that all new WordPress vulnerability database vulnerabilities will come with a CVSS risk score. However, these will be limited to the API and to Enterprise users for now.
From today all Enterprise users have access to Slack Incoming Webhook Notifications functionality.
The new notifications allow Enterprise users to set a Slack Incoming Webhook URL within their profile page that will send a Slack notification with the vulnerability title and URL every time a new vulnerability is added to our database.
While checking fixes of critical issues in a premium plugin, we stumbled across an insufficient filename entropy where the PHP function time() was used to generate a part of the md5 hashed string to form the filename. These files generally contain sensitive data, such as log, PII etc and as it’s not the first we see such a mistake, we though it would be a good idea to make a post out of it.More
On March 2nd 2020 we will be introducing paid vulnerability email alerts for instant and daily emails.
Traditionally we have been giving these away free of charge to our users, but the number of subscribers has increased steadily over the years and they are starting to become a significant monthly cost to us.
