WordPress 5.7.1 Security and Maintenance Release

The WordPress team released WordPress 5.7.1. This version features 26 bug fixes in addition to two security fixes:

    • XML External Entity Injection within the media library affecting only PHP 8.

Fix: WordPress Security Team disabled the ability to load external entities for all versions

    • Data exposure vulnerability within the REST API.

Fix: WordPress Security Team added extra measures to restrict access to password protected posts.

The Pagely team will be rolling out this patch for all customers shortly. If you have a version hold request on file, we will patch your site while keeping it on the same major branch version.
