Version of jQuery In WordPress Failing Security Audit


In the latest version of WordPress, in Google Chrome’s Lighthouse audit tool it is failing the ‘best practices’ part of the audit because of an old version of jQuery that seems to be being shipped with WordPress (jQuery version 1.10.2) which apparently contains cross sight scripting vulnerabilities.

Why is such an old version still being used and how do I rectify this issue?

I’m currently on version (5.5.1) of WordPress.

Many thanks in advance
