Back to school sales offer big discounts on MacBook deals with free AirPods thrown in

Image Description

MacBook deals are seeing some fantastic price cuts in the latest back to school sales. From the latest MacBook Pro and Air models to big discounts on older versions, there's plenty of reductions on luxury Apple laptops right now. Plus, if you're a student you'll also find free AirPods thrown into the mix as well. 

The latest MacBook Air has dropped down to $899 this week at a number of retailers (£949 in the UK). Among them is Apple, which is also offering a free pair of AirPods with every MacBook purchase. That means you can save cash and bag some extra value by shopping Apple direct, especially considering this configuration has been listed for $999 in the past. 

If you're looking for MacBook Pro deals, you'll be shopping at B&H Photo for a 13-inch model or Amazon for the massive 16-inch powerhouse. The former is still holding well at $1,179 for the 2019 model, a great sales price that's stuck around for a few weeks now. Of course, if you're after Dolby Atmos speakers, the Magic keyboard and double the storage you can also save $100 on the 2020 version, with similar savings available at Amazon in the UK. 

If you need some serious power, however, there's still time to save $300 on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. This model did drop below $2,000 a couple of weeks ago, but that price certainly didn't last long. That means this is your best shot at picking up a 16-inch MacBook deal for the foreseeable future.  

We're rounding up all these MacBook deals just below, but you'll find plenty more prices further down the page as well.

  • Many critical WordPress security flaws never get patched

    Plugins for WordPress, or more specifically - free WordPress plugins, are a real primordial soup of flaws and vulnerabilities, many of which allow threat actors to completely take over the target website, and many of which - never get patched.

    This is the grim conclusion in a report from Patchstack, a company that provides threat intelligence and security tools for the popular website builder platform.

    According to the report, the number of vulnerabilities linked to WordPress grew 150% in 2021 compared to the previous year. Of those vulnerabilities, only 0.58% are in WordPress core, the actual website builder. More than nine in ten (91.38%) were found in free plugins, and 8.62% in commercial plugins.

    XSS the most popular flaw

    Almost a third (29%) of the critical flaws found in WordPress plugins never get patched. The good news is that the plugins that don’t get patched, are eventually thrown out of the plugin repository. The report said nine plugins never received patches, and were subsequently removed. 

    Last year, the company discovered five vulnerabilities of critical severity, affecting a total of 55 WordPress themes. One of them abused file upload features, which was a particularly dangerous finding. Among the plugins, Patchstack found 35 critical vulnerabilities, two of which were present in four million websites. 

    The most popular flaw to be reported, Patchstack further found, was cross-site scripting (XSS), followed by “mixed” cross-site request forgery, SQL injections, and arbitrary file uploads. 

    The average WordPress site has 18 installed components, at least one of which carries in it, a dangerous vulnerability. The report says the number is down, compared to the average 23 plugins installed the year before.

    Of all the vulnerable plugins, the most popular targets last year were OptinMonster, PublishPress Capabilities, Booster for WooCommerce plugin, and Image Hover Effects Ultimate plugin.

    Almost half (43.2%) of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress.
