Routine updates have always been available through The WP Butler, whether that’s weekly, twice weekly or thrice weekly. However, when a plugin or WordPress has a security vulnerability that gets patched, you want that update applied to your site as soon as possible, because the exploit has been made public so hackers are now in a position to take advantage of it.
WordPress has had a good resource for a while now which records when security vulnerabilities are identified and patched, called the WPScan Vulnerability Database.
Now, each and every day, The WP Butler checks all of your plugins against the vulnerability database and if one of your installed plugins is flagged as having a security vulnerability, the update to the secure version will automatically be applied.
This service is included in the cost of every plan, even if you don’t have updates as part of your maintenance plan: it’s just one more way that The WP Butler is looking out for you and pursuing its mission of taking the worry out of maintaining your WordPress site.
