In this episode, Marcus Couch and I are joined by Aaron D. Campbell, WordPress Security Team Lead. Campbell provides insight into who’s on the team and what they do behind the scenes to coordinate security releases. We discuss the complex nature of disclosures, when to publish them, and how much information they should have.
In light of WordPress 4.7.2, Campbell shares the lessons he learned and how they’ll be applied to future releases. If you’ve ever wondered about the security aspects of WordPress, this is the episode for you.
