  • Hi,
    I’ve looked at all the vulnerability fixes and they are all protecting against the legitimate content. E.g. your user profile data, post titles on the admin page etc. , rather than third party input e.g. comments.
    Further, these fixes use a piece of functionality which has been removed from WP (because it didn’t actually do anything!)
    So, unless you have registered users you cannot trust you are unlikely to need these fixes.
    When I’ve examined them some more I may add them to the WP code. But given my understanding of the changes, I don’t see this as a high priorityat the moment.
    I’m happy to be corrected.

    Yes, it doesn’t look like anything to get excited about.
