The top AMP plugin for WordPress, AMP for WP, has released a released a patch for a critical security vulnerability.
AMP for WP, which currently has 100,000+ downloads, was pulled from the official WordPress.org plugins section last month.
It has since reappeared as of last week.
The developer says the reason it was pulled was due to a security flow that “could be exploited by non-admins of the site.”
If you’re one of the many WordPress users with this plugin installed it’s recommended that you download the patch.
Applying the patch is as simple as updating the plugin from your WordPress dashboard.
If you have automatic updates turned on then your plugin may already by patched. Otherwise you will have to update the plugin manually.
