Risks of Open Source & Plugins

The data below speaks for itself. A reliance on OpenSource or 3rd Party Plugins creates significantly greater security vulnerabilities.

(Source: The global database of software vulnerabilities:

Software Vulnerabilities OpenSource Comment
AdaptiveEComm: 0 No Security is built within every module and is not an after thought/wrap-around.
BigCommerce: 1 No The single instance is the WordPress plugin. This should come as no surprise.
Wix: 3 No The latest vulnerability, 2023, related to its database allowing code injection.
Shopify: 3 No Vulnerabilities relate to plugins, including WordPress and the Hydrogen React-JS framework used to build shopify store fronts (themes).
Magento: 315 Yes The number speaks for itself.
Adobe Commerce: 43 + 315 = 358 Yes Adobe Commerce is built on OpenSource Magento. Adobe's own list of 43 occurred mostly 2022-2023.
WooCommerce: 423 + 7427 = 7,850 Yes WooCommerce is the WordPress plugin for E-Commerce.
The number speaks for itself.

 ▪  When software is Open Source hackers have easier access to study and exploit vulnerabilities

 ▪  3rd Party Plugin providers often place too much focus on profit vs. security

 ▪  We strongly advise against building any system on top of WordPress (WP). We ban it from our servers. To-date WordPress and its     plugins have experienced over 7,400 vulnerabilities with around 100 new vulnerabilities/month

 ▪  Even private software reliant on plugins (for themes and additional functionality) is subject to greater risk. The only private     E-Commerce solution not reliant on plugins is AdaptiveEComm
