Just heard back from the WordPress plugin team and it’s most definitely a case of mistaken identity. (How? No idea.)

    I log into ManageWP—a dang handy tool by the way, although I only use it on a few select sites—for the first time in a long time, and bam, I get hit with the very same notice. Very same vulnerability database. (Clicking around a bit actually reveals that this particular CVE is all about a fairly ancient Windows app called FeedReader3, and that a certain mailing list at one point did mention, in a rather unrelated fashion, “WordPress,” so there’s that.)
