Patchstack created a page summarizing WordPress vulnerability statistics.
Good news from Patchstack for individuals and small agencies. Based on community feedback they have now updated their Community Plan options and pricing. The Community Plan used to include only up to 10 sites for vulnerability detection, but no real time protection. Real time protection used to cost $9 per month a site additional.
Now real time protection is only $5 per month per site additional. So to add real time protection for a single site is only $60 a year.
These changes fill the gap between the Community Plan and the higher number of sites / real time protection included Developer Plan.
By the way, this makes Patchstack less expensive for vPatching real time protection than Wordfence.

I was looking at Jerry Gamblin’s compiled stats about vulnerability reporting in 2023 across all software (the report is not WP specific). It was interesting to note that PatchStack was the top reporting agency. Congrats to Oliver Sild and his team.

Patchstack has a new feature, Patchstack Priority. What I gather from the announcement is that it is another rating system in addition to the CVSS score. The Patchstack Priority is meant to indicate how likely the immediate threat is and how quickly you should respond.
I always update vulnerable plugins immediately, so I’m not sure how helpful this will be for me, though it is good to know if there are active exploits.
