Earlier today we noted a security company putting out inaccurate information on vulnerabilities in a WordPress plugin. That isn’t uncommon, as while looking into who might have discovered a recent vulnerability we found NinTechNet suggesting updating the plugin, FV Player (FV Flowplayer Video Player), to version 22.214.171.1247:
This post provides the details of a vulnerability in the WordPress plugin FV Player not discovered by us, where the discoverer hadn’t provided the details needed for us to confirm the vulnerability while we were adding it to the data set for our service, so its contents are limited to subscribers of our service. If you are not currently a subscriber, you can try out the service to help protect your website for free and then you can view the contents of the post. There are a lot of other reason that you will want to sign up beyond access to posts like this one, including that you would have already been warned about this vulnerability if your website was vulnerable due to it.
