NextGEN Vulnerability Patched on SiteGround Hosting

Yesterday, our partners from Sucuri have discovered a serious SQL injection vulnerability in one of the most popular WordPress gallery plugins - NextGen Gallery. Our security team started working immediatelly on the issue and created a rule in our web application firewall (WAF) to block any potential attempts to exploit this vulnerability. However, we strongly recommend that all NextGen Galleryย users update their plugin to version 2.1.79 which fixes the core of the issue in the plugin code.

Enthusiastic about all Open Source applications you can think of, but mostly about WordPress. Add a pinch of love for web design, new technologies, search engine optimisation and you are pretty much there!
