    Can’t wait for the fixed version given that WordFence have issued a vulnerability report for all Woo versions up to 8.4.0 https://www.wordfence.com/threat-intel/vulnerabilities/wordpress-plugins/woocommerce/woocommerce-840-reflected-cross-site-scripting

    1. Thank you for mentioning about the vulnerability! It seems that WordFence updated their post to clarify that it’s been fixed in WooCommerce 8.4.0.
