I believe I reported this a couple of years ago, or made a suggestion to upgrade this, but it is still an issue. Whenever someone shares an article on my site the iFrame tags that are embedded insert this obsolete html tag: scrolling="no"
I am not sure about other sites, but with mine we share lots of the articles, so this error is an issue with SEO, and you can see examples of it here:
Is this something you are aware of, and working on?
Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! I can confirm this should be further reviewed and I have logged an internal bug report for our development team to investigate and address as necessary, in a future maintenance release.
A fix for this has been submitted for review and should be in the 4.7.1 release unless there are issues in testing.
This issue has been resolved in 4.7.0 which has recently been released. Please upgrade to that version to resolve this, and of course, let us know if you are still seeing any issues.
I have updated my site to 4.7, yet the scrolling="no" is still present, and the error is still there:

This change will not retroactively apply to existing embeds.
That is too bad, as I've got such posts everywhere in my site, and such errors are bad for SEO.
I did a small test, and it seems that simply removing:
seems to eliminate the errors, and I see no downside to this approach. Do you have any concerns with using this approach?
seems to work without downsides....please let me know.
A quick update, on my test site simply stripping scrolling="no" eliminated the errors, and the posts function correctly.
