WP Statistics <= 126.96.36.199 - Authenticated Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)Sign up to our free email alerts service for instant vulnerability notifications!
Version 188.8.131.52 and below of the WP Statistics WordPress Plugin was found to be vulnerable to Authenticated Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS). The 'ip' GET parameter on the 'wps_visitors_page' page is output to a page without first being validated, sanitised or output encoded. This leads to Authenticated Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), which could allow attackers to compromise a WordPress application by tricking an authenticated administrator user into clicking on a specially crafted link. Please note that other potential instances of Authenticated XSS were identified, however, were protected by Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) nonces. This issue was patched within hours by the vendor in version 12.0.9.
