WooCommerce 7.8-8.9 have received important fixes.

We have detected an issue involving the unintended loading of a file on the frontend of WooCommerce storefronts for versions 7.8.0 through 8.9.1 See our developer advisory for more information.

These releases fix said issues.

Current Stable Tag

👉 WooCommerce 8.9.2

📆 Released June 4, 2024

What’s in this release

This release includes fixes to remove a request which stores some basic request data (including IP address of the site visitor) in our server request logs hosted on Automattic (Woo’s parent company) infrastructure for a maximum of 14 days in WooCommerce versions 7.8.0 through 8.9.1.

Starting with WooCommerce 7.8.0 and continuing through the most recent release, 8.9.1, the https://stats.wp.com/w.js file is loaded on every frontend page. Loading this file was introduced as part of a feature to register server-side tracking during REST requests, as documented in Issue #37796.
