A security researcher has disclosed details of a critical vulnerability in one of the popular and widely active plugins for WordPress that could allow a low-privileged attacker to inject malicious code on AMP pages of the targeted website.

The vulnerable WordPress plugin in question is “AMP for WP – Accelerated Mobile Pages” that lets websites automatically generate valid accelerated mobile pages for their blog posts and other web pages.

AMP, stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages, is an open-source technology that has been designed by Google to allow websites build and server faster web pages to mobile visitors.

Though I am pretty sure the main version of “The Hacker News” website is enough fast for both desktop and mobile device users, you can also check the AMP version for this specific article here.
