What is wp-sec?
Wp-sec is an extension for wp-cli which checks for Wordpress CVE security issues at wpvulndb.com. All installed versions of core, plugins and themes can be checked and monitored, so you know when to update your Wordpress installation.
Following synopsis should be enough to get you started
NAME wp wp-sec DESCRIPTION Check for CVE security issues at wpvulndb.com SYNOPSIS wp wp-sec <command> SUBCOMMANDS check Checks for core, plugins and themes version Returns current version CHECK PARAMETERS --type=[core|plugins|themes|all] Check for a specific part, or use all to check all parts Default: all --output=[user|nagios|json] Controls the output Default: user --cached Lets you cache the resuls of wpvulndb, to prevent hammering at their servers. Be nice to them, it's a free service --ttl=[integer] Cache control of above --cached setting. If omitted a default of 8 hours is used. This setting will give you fine grained control. Value is entered in seconds --api=[v2|v3] The WPvulnDB API version to be used. Currently there is no functional difference between these API's. Except for logging in with a token on API v3 --token=[<your token>] Your user token to be used @ wpvulndb.com. Only needed for API v3 --lowercase Converts themes and plugin names to lowercase to submit to wpvulndb. This is due to an issue at wpvulndb. https://github.com/markri/wp-sec/issues/14 As of october 2018 (tested) it doesn't seem to be needed anymore GLOBAL PARAMETERS All global wp cli parameters are inherited
Installing this package requires WP-CLI v0.23.0 or greater. Install fresh wp-cli as instructed here
Or update to the latest stable release with
wp cli update.
Unfortunately the wp-cli satis repository isn't much updated anymore. So the easiest way to install the wp-sec package is to download the latest zipball from here and install it locally with
wp package install <version>.zip.
We appreciate you taking the initiative to contribute to this project.
Contributing isn’t limited to just code. We encourage you to contribute in the way that best fits your abilities, by writing tutorials, giving a demo at your local meetup, helping other users with their support questions, or revising our documentation.
To setup a development environment for code contributions, follow instructions below. Execution of the extension is done within a dockerized environment (only tested under Linux). Editing can still be done outside of docker as the current directory is mounted into the docker environment.
Place wp-cli binary in the bin folder. According to current documentation from WP-CLI you would want to do something like:
cd bin curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar chmod +x wp-cli.phar mv wp-cli.phar wp
Create a docker environment and bring it up like this:
docker-compose up -d
Enter your dev environment and create a fresh wordpress installation to test against
docker exec -ti wpsec-phpcli /bin/bash mkdir testsite && cd testsite wp core download wp core config --dbname=wpsec --dbuser=wpsec --dbpass=wpsec --dbhost=wpsec-mariadb wp core install --url=http://localhost --title=testsite --admin_user=admin --admin_password=admin --firstname.lastname@example.org --skip-email
Running (from /home/wp/testsite)
wp wp-sec check
Preparing testsuite (from /home/wp)
composer install mysql -h wpsec-mariadb -e 'CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS wp_cli_test;' -uroot -pwpsec
