1. Plugin Vulnerabilities

    What is referred to as a “high-risk XSS” vulnerability in your article is actually very low risk. It was a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability, which isn’t something that hackers try to exploit at all on the average website and even in a targeted attack an attacker would have to bypass protection provided by major web browsers other than Firefox. The claim that it was high-risk came from a company behind a competing caching plugin, which wasn’t clearly noted in the linked source.

    Our experience has been that severity based ratings of WordPress plugin vulnerabilities often significantly overstate the risk and we have found that it is better to express the risk based on the likelihood of exploitation since that provides a better understanding of the danger presented by the vulnerability.

    Hi Justin,

    Congratulations to Frederick Townes and the whole team behind of W3 Total Cache plugin. This is really good news for all those who use W3 Total Cache Plugin. Based on what Brad from BoldGrid is saying future of W3 Total Cache Plugin is looking bright. W3 Total Cache Plugin is one plugin that i use in most of my WordPress sites. I am looking forward to the on-boarding and configuration guide, hopefully it will help me make most of the W3 plugin.

    I have used W3 Total Cache for for free for years now and it has been excellent. I hope the new owners will not try to add a price tag to it. Let’s watch.

    W3TC is to complicated! I would rather of prefer simpler plugins like Supper Cash or Cash Enabler that work just as well.

    Frederick Townes has done well and he deserves a big kudos. I have leverage on W3 for free and must commend him and his team for the W3 Total Cache Plugin.

    W3TC is a great plugin. But it lost its top position over the last few years. I hope this cooperation will bring it back to the top.
