      “Admins and owners of WordPress websites are urged to immediately apply the Jetpack 7.9.1 critical security update to prevent potential attacks that could abuse a vulnerability that has existed since Jetpack 5.1.”

      “The Jetpack developers state that no evidence was discovered until the release of the critical Jetpack 7.9.1 security update that the vulnerability has been exploited in the wild.”

      “”However, now that the update has been released, it is only a matter of time before someone tries to take advantage of this vulnerability,” the developers warn.”
