JetPack XSS Security Issue – What We Did to Protect You

On October 1st, a security issue in JetPack, one of the most commonly used WordPress plugins, was disclosed by our partners from Sucuri. The vulnerability was severe because an attacker could exploit the contact form feature of the plugin to insert and execute JavaScript code as an admin of your site. Needless to say, that could lead to all sort of problems - injecting black SEO links, adding backdoors for full access to your account, accessing private information, etc. In this recap post, we would like to summarise what we did to protect SiteGround users with this plugin installed.

One Step to a Superior WooCommerce Store


Starting a proper online shop with WooCommerce has so far meant: buying hosting, installing WordPress and then configuring several plugins. Given the popularity of the platform, it obviously is not a terribly complicated process, but it does assume some essential knowledge.

In collaboration with Automattic, the people behind WordPress and WooCommerce, we recently started working on removing that barrier, creating a one-step solution to get online and start selling. To make it right, we had to package plenty of features and ensure absolutely no setup time on the user’s end. Today, the WooCommerce Bundle is live. It’s everything you need to start a rockstar ecommerce website, and it’s up and running, hooked up and connected, right after sign-up.
