Description

Attackers have been exploiting a security weakness in a GDPR compliance plugin for WordPress to seize control of vulnerable websites, according to a blog post by Defiant, which makes Wordfence security plugins for the web publishing platform.


What You Can Do

The developer behind the plugin, which is called WP GDPR Compliance, has issued a patch fixing the critical flaw. Its users are, therefore, strongly advised to upgrade to version 1.4.3, or alternatively disable or remove the tool.
