Wordfence Intelligence Weekly WordPress Vulnerability Report (May 13, 2024 to May 19, 2024)

Did you know we’re running a Bug Bounty Extravaganza again?

Earn over 6x our usual bounty rates, up to $10,000, for all vulnerabilities submitted through May 27th, 2024 when you opt to have Wordfence handle responsible disclosure!

Last week, there were 107 vulnerabilities disclosed in 82 WordPress Plugins and 8 WordPress Themes that have been added to the Wordfence Intelligence Vulnerability Database, and there were 42 Vulnerability Researchers that contributed to WordPress Security last week. Review those vulnerabilities in this report now to ensure your site is not affected.

Our mission with Wordfence Intelligence is to make valuable vulnerability information easily accessible to everyone, like the WordPress community, so individuals and organizations alike can utilize that data to make the internet more secure. That is why the Wordfence Intelligence user interface, vulnerability API, webhook integration, and Wordfence CLI Vulnerability Scanner are all completely free to access and utilize both personally and commercially, and why we are running this weekly vulnerability report.

Enterprises, Hosting Providers, and even Individuals can use the Wordfence CLI Vulnerability Scanner to run regular vulnerability scans across the sites they protect. Or alternatively, utilize the vulnerability Database API to receive a complete dump of our database of over 16,000 vulnerabilities and then utilize the webhook integration to stay on top of the newest vulnerabilities added in real-time, as well as any updates made to the database, all for free.

New Firewall Rules Deployed Last Week

The Wordfence Threat Intelligence Team reviews each vulnerability to determine impact and severity, along with assessing the likelihood of exploitation, to verify that the Wordfence Firewall provides sufficient protection.

The team rolled out enhanced protection via firewall rules for the following vulnerabilities in real-time to our PremiumCare, and Response customers last week:

WAF-RULE-700 – Data redacted while we work with the vendor on a patch.
WAF-RULE-699 – Data redacted while we work with the vendor on a patch.

Wordfence PremiumCare, and Response customers received this protection immediately, while users still running the free version of Wordfence will receive this enhanced protection after a 30 day delay.
