Major Data Loss Bug in WPEngine and Yoast SEO Plugin - Enterprise Irregulars

Major Data Loss Bug in WPEngine and Yoast SEO Plugin - Enterprise Irregulars | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
What would you think if I told you that while using the most popular WordPress SEO plugin on one of the most popular WordPress hosting platforms you’d lose a blog post approximately every 30 days and be locked out of your account?  It’ll cost you the time it took to write the blog post plus the time to unsnarl things with the hoster each time.

Pretty ugly, right?

Well that’s exactly what can happen if you use WPEngine as your host and the Yoast SEO Plugin.  I’ve been around this track twice in the last 30 days.  Both times WordPress froze while I was editing a blog post.  Both times I lost the entire post with no backup.  I’m not sure why the normal incremental saves failed.  Both times I was completely locked out of my site–my IP address was blocked.  And both times I had to have my IP address white listed to get back in.
CYDigital's insight:

You should test to see if you are experiencing the same.

Warning: Vulnerability discovered in Yoast SEO WordPress plugin - Marketing Land

Warning: Vulnerability discovered in Yoast SEO WordPress plugin - Marketing Land | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
WordPress and Yoast SEO users: If you do not have the most recent version of the Yoast SEO plugin, grab it now. Last Friday, it was discovered that Yoast SEO versions 3.2.4 and earlier would allow anyone who has “subscriber” level access to your WordPress site to download your Yoast SEO settings.

What this means is that it would be easy for someone to get into open sites to access your potentially confidential SEO settings just by creating an account and exploiting the vulnerability.
