  1. Hi,

    When I do the update, I get an error saying Beaver Builder isn’t able to save changes. I went through the process of disabling and re-enabling plug-ins and found that UABB is definitely the cause.

    Has this been reported by anyone else? Is there another update planned soon?

  2. Hello, I think you’re misunderstood. We sent an email to all our customers as soon as we released a patch. Moreover, we sent another reminder email after 24 hours just to make sure everyone will get a notification. The changelog has a mention of the security fix as well.

    1. All you need to do is just update the plugin to the latest version. We have already patched the vulnerability in the latest version of the plugin.

      In order for hackers to exploit this vulnerability, they need to know the email address of existing registered users. If they don’t know the email address of existing users such as admin, they would most likely just end up creating a “subscriber” level account, which has almost zero permissions to do anything on a website.

      If you believe your website was hacked due to vulnerably in our plugin, kindly accept our sincere apologies. We understand it is difficult to have a website hacked. We try our best to build secure products and this is a very first instance our plugin had a critical security vulnerability. As a further precaution, we have involved a third-party security audit company to review the entire codebase, so we can get external feedback and make other improvements where necessary.

      To clean a hacked website, I would highly recommend Malcare’s Malware Cleaning Service. If you prefer to do it yourself, please refer a blog post here.

  3. This update completely broke our modules for UABB and was very frustrating. We need to downgrade to the vulnerable version now.

    1. Hello Rob,
