    This Primer Theme needs a major update as 9 of my WordPress sites were hacked/malware. New bot users were added across sites with administrative capabilities. I am using the most up to date Primer Version: 1.8.9
    By GoDaddy.

    The point of entry appears to be the Primer theme. There does not appear to be an available update at this time. I am reaching out to you the developers to make you aware of this incident to see if you’re able to provide a patch.

    I’m sorry, I do not know how to use forums. Will someone be able to reply to my question above? Just looking to see if Primer theme can be patched?

    Good morning @adminthiele !

    Yes, we will try to get a patch on the Primer theme this week for that. Thanks for the info!

    Hello Olivier, great to know and thanks for offering to patch the Primer theme. Just to check if your team is still able to patch the theme soon and available for use in wordpress.org? Thanks so much! Jay

    A member of our team is currently working on that, but the timeline to be released is not clear. We’ll keep you updated here!
