WordPress 5.9.2 is here on March 10, 2022

WordPress 5.9.2 has been released. This version has no new features because it is a security and maintenance release. WordPress is updated with improved security and a slew of bug fixes. One bug patch and three security fixes are included in the "WordPress 5.9.2 Security and Maintenance Release.

Melar Dev & Ben Bidner played a vital role in promptly disclosing vulnerabilities of the older versions and allowing them to be addressed in this release:

  • Melar Dev uncovered a Prototype Pollution Vulnerability in a jQuery dependency.
  • The WordPress security team's Ben Bidner discovered a Stored Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability.
