WordPress Download Manager <= 2.7.94 - Authenticated Stored XSSSign up to our free email alerts service for instant vulnerability notifications!
The stored XSS vulnerability allows any authenticated user to inject malicious code via the name of the uploaded file: Example: <svg onload=alert(0)>.jpg The vulnerability exists because the file name is not properly sanitized and this can lead to malicious code injection that will be executed on the target’s browser.
|Proof of Concept||
1. The attacker creates a new download package via the plugin's menu and uploads a file with the name: <svg onload=alert(0)>.jpg 2. The stored XSS can be triggered when an authenticated user (e.g. admin) attempts to edit this download package
fixed in version 2.7.95
