WordPress 5.6 was released this week with a new feature called application passwords. In this episode we talk about how application passwords work, where to find them in your WordPress installation, and why Wordfence decided to turn these off by default in version 7.4.14. We also talk about a new Magecart attack that places card skimmers inside of CSS files, MailPoet joining WooCommerce and what this means for eCommerce on WordPress sites. FireEye, one of the largest security firms, reported they were hacked by a nation state APT group, and a wormable zero-click vulnerability was found in Microsoft Teams.
