This is a general community announcement for users of WordPress websites, to bring your attention to a XSS vulnerability affecting multiple WordPress plugins and themes. The vulnerability is caused by a common code pattern used in WordPress plugins and themes.. it will affect millions of websites, so super important you get onto this and update your wordpress site!
We probably all wish to achieve it, to be ranked first on Google (and other Search Engines) for our desired industry related “obvious keywords”. Say you were a eCommerce retailer of shoes for runners, an obvious example would be a desire to rank at the top of Google for the keywords “running shoes”.
However, the feat of taking your small business or new website rankings from +50 to 1st on Google would take tremendous effort, expense and time. So getting well ranked for a competitive term such as “running shoes” (when you are up against brands like Nike, Asics etc) would be, well tough to say the least!
