Sucuri has just put out an security alert on a severe zero day vulnerability in the WordPress REST API. This vulnerability allows an unauthenticated user to modify the content of any post or page within a site.
So what should you do?
Go into your WordPress Dashboard, click on ‘Updates’ and make sure that you have the latest version of WordPress. You should see a message like this.
If you do not have the latest version, I strongly recommend that you update to the latest version of WordPress. As always before updating your website ensure you have a backup of your website.
