 WordPress practices late escaping. In other words, unsafe values should be
 escaped as close to their output as possible. Preemptively escaping every
 value that is passed to a function would be unnecessary and can sometimes
 lead to security issues itself.

 Instead, you'd need to look at the function being called,
 `render_block_core_legacy_widget` and evaluate if there were any places
 where output was generated without being properly escaped.
