Of concern is the Lighthouse audit for the Marcus Lemonis website flags 4 vulnerabilities related to jQuery. The site runs two version of jQuery.

jQuery@1.11.0 with 1 Medium risk vulnerability.
jQuery UI@1.9.2 with 3 High risk vulnerabilities.

Google’s advice is:

“Stop using each of the libraries that Lighthouse flags. If the library has released a newer version that fixes the vulnerability, upgrade to that version, or consider using a different library.”

Quite a number of webmasters miss these jQuery vulnerabilities, I did a similar website review on the Yoast domain a few months back and it had similar jQuery vulnerabilities listed.

I emailed Yoast them to let them know and it’s since been fixed. Will attempt to contact the Marcus Lemonis webmaster to let them know there’s a possible cyber security issue.
