Open source software gets better and is more secure when trust and cooperation win out over secrecy and working alone in the dark. Patchstack’s report on the State of WordPress Security in 2022 shows this is not just an ideal but an achievable reality. Transparency and collaboration on security issues play to the strengths of open source communities. They’re essential values and practices for building and maintaining better — and more secure — WordPress sites, products, and services. We’re proud to have Patchstack as a partner delivering the latest vulnerability information to our iThemes Security and Security Pro customers so they can better protect all the WordPress sites they build, own, or manage.
