I think I was blinded today when I got up and started working – we have sunshine on the Wet Coast! If you have little amounts of sunshine like we do, make certain that you get outside and take full advantage of it when it's there!!
Drag the kids out, drag your friends out, go have a picnic or something, enjoy and get that vitamin D! Remember to ditch the socials while you're out, and you will find you feel waaaayyyyy better when you get home!
Go be a kid.
We have some news from the world of WordPress for you today as well as some great plugins.
News this week:
WordPress Vulnerability Report – June 22, 2022 – There is a decent sized list today for the plugins to worry about – though be sure to check the ‘fixed plugins' too. I noticed that Gravity PDF is on the ‘fixed' list this week.
Some I recognize on the worrisome plugins this week: Pricing Deals for WooCommerce, Comment License, Custom Popup Builder, Rename wp-login.php, WordPress Team Manager – this is just a few, be sure to have a look at the list this week for both your site and your clients sites.
WordPress.org forces security update for critical Ninja Forms Vulnerability – Last week Ninja Form users got a forced update for a PHP object injection vulnerability – this made it possible to be remotely exploited without anyone needing authentication of any kind. Oddly enough, Ninja Forms did not post about his update on its blog or social media accounts or anything…
If you use Ninja Forms and do not allow auto updates, be sure to head into yours and your clients sites to update in short order.
WordPress.org strongly urges Theme Authors to switch to locally hosted webfonts – The reason for this is because of the recent German court case, which fined a website owner for biolating the GDPR by using Google-Hosted webfonts. The Themes Team is also considering banning remotely hosted web fonts moving forward, though this is still being discussed. Core contributors are now working on updating all the default themes from Twenty Twelbe through Twenty Seventeen to use locally hosted webfonts. This could affect your sites if you use Google WebFonts, so be aware of this.
