PMPro Update 2.3.3 – Security Release

Version 2.3.3 of Paid Memberships Pro is out with a handful of bug fixes, including a security patch. All users are advised to update as soon as possible.

The security issue involves a SQL injection vulnerability on the add/edit orders page in the WP dashboard. A user must be logged in as an administrator to launch the attack. We do not suspect that this vulnerability is being actively exploited. Even so, it is important to fix this issue since it could be used in conjunction with other vulnerabilities to do damage to your site.
