Deserialization of Untrusted Data
The joomsport_md_load AJAX action of the JoomSport WordPress plugin before 5.1.8, registered for both unauthenticated and unauthenticated users, unserialised user input from the shattr POST parameter, leading to a PHP Object Injection issue. Even though the plugin does not have a suitable gadget chain to exploit this, other installed plugins could, which might lead to more severe issues such as RCE
CWE-502 - Deserialization of Untrusted Data
Deserialization of untrusted data vulnerabilities enable an attacker to replace or manipulate a serialized object, replacing it with malicious data. When the object is deserialized at the victim's end the malicious data is able to compromise the victim’s system. The exploit can be devastating, its impact may range from privilege escalation, broken access control, or denial of service attacks to allowing unauthorized access to the application's internal code and logic which can compromise the entire system.
