We share the results of the assurance work we undertake. We publish advisories about security vulnerabilities we identify with suggested steps you can take to mitigate them.

Security reviews

To make sure that the sites we build and the plugins they rely on are secure we regularly carry out plugin reviews and publish our findings.

Open source

WordPress is only as good as the community that supports it. We think it's important to give back, so we share the results of our security work, and write and maintain plugins and open source projects.
