    That exploit has long been corrected in Link Library. Have you been keeping up with updates? Who is saying that this specific exploit is causing you problems?

    There was previously an SQL injection vulnerability in the search code. This code was revised since to make sure that each search term is a single string.

    Here is the delta between version 5.2.1 where the issue was found and version 5.2.2 where it was corrected.


    The fix was approved by the WordPress plugin support team.

    If you security team thinks that this fix is not sufficient, you can have them send me a proposed fix and I will roll it into the plugin.

    thank you for the help. I will let you know if i they send me any other changes. real quick i have a map program any chance you know of a plugin that links "links" on a page to a point on a map. so if you say you have map on the top of a page and below you have a buch of links. If you click on a link it takes you to a place on the map.
