Comment (by galbaras):

 Looks like Google is considering WordPress "not best practice" for using a
 vulnerable library. Just tested my sites with Google Lighthouse and this
 was flagged and is likely affecting site ranking, albeit slightly.

 The severity is "medium", by the way, which is rather scary.
