If your website was built in WordPress, and you’ve been working on SEO, there is a good chance you use the Yoast plugin. There is some news this week stating that there is a vulnerability in older versions of the Yoast plugin. I have included a link with the full story below, but here are the highlights of the article.
1. Hackers can install a link in hopes of getting an admin or page editor to click it and trigger an attack.
2. Once the attack is complete, the hacker can create their own admin account, and then do whatever they want on the site.
3. Attacks can be prevented by updating the Yoast plugin to the latest version.
