WooCommerce 4.6.2 is now available!
To keep the stability and performance of WooCommerce, the team regularly updates this plugin with new features, bug fixes and improvements.
And now, let’s started!
What’s new in WooCommerce 4.6.2?
This release fixes a bug discovered recently that allows anonymous users to create an account during checkout even when the “Allow customers to create an account during checkout” setting is disabled. The fix to this bug can be found here.
The team found this problem while investigating reports of a bot that is creating spam orders in some WooCommerce stores.
The gist of it is that the bot is able to create a user when placing an order exploiting the bug fixed by 4.6.2. After creating the user, the bot tries to find vulnerabilities in other plugins installed on the site that require an unprivileged authenticated account.
Updating to WooCommerce 4.6.2 will stop the bot from creating a user account when the “Allow customers to create an account during checkout” setting is disabled, but it won’t stop it from creating orders. Removing user accounts created by the bot is recommended.
Here is the WooCommerce 4.6.2 changelog:
- Prevent checkout from creating accounts when the related setting is disabled.
Thanks to everyone for reporting this issue promptly and helping out with the fix release.
