    How would this affect services like ManageWP?

    I was really excited about this addition to core and think it’s a great step in terms of security. That ticket was a few years old and I remember that #StopMullware twitter incident from a few years back.

    Good to hear about this as WordPress security has always been an issue.

    I have used this “Site Health” innovation to check the results but to my dismay I scored badly because: –
    1. I should upgrade to latest version of PHP!! I have been on 7.2.* since whenever. FAIL !
    2. ‘One or more recommended modules are missing’ Really!
    a. Fileinfo
    b. Imagick
    Neither of these I had heard of so I looked them up and “low and behold” they both belong to Automattic would you believe. Incredible; I am now subject to abuse because my site does not use a product which is (according to my google research) designed for wordpress.com users.
    Well well. What do we expect next?

      1. The latest version of PHP is 7.3.5.

      2. Neither FileInfo nor Imagick are owned by Automattic.

      3. Research isn’t that hard.
