New ‘White Screen of Death’ protection feature in WordPress raises concerns.

WordPress is introducing WSOD (White-screen-of-death) Protection, the equivalent of a WordPress Safe Mode. The feature will allow WordPress to recognise when a fatal PHP error occurs and can identify what and where the error originated from. The feature has raised concern among researchers who warn that the new feature could be used to disable security plugins and put WordPress sites and blogs at risk.
