Hi, I saw this page about OpenLiteSpeed 126.96.36.199 https://thehackernews.com/2022/11/multiple-high-severity-flaw-affect.html and my OpenLiteSpeed web admin page says my current version is only OpenLiteSpeed 1.7.16. Does that mean I am exposed to CVE-2022-0072 CVE-2022-0073 and CVE-2022-0074? If so what should I do about this?
