Severity Medium
Score 6.1/10


The తెలుగు బైబిల్ వచనములు WordPress plugin through 1.0 is lacking any CSRF check when saving its settings and verses, and do not sanitise or escape them when outputting them back in the page. This could allow attackers to make a logged in admin change the settings, as well as add malicious verses containing JavaScript code in them, leading to Stored XSS issues

CWE-352 - Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)

Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) is a vulnerability that allows an attacker to make arbitrary requests in an authenticated vulnerable web application and disrupt the integrity of the victim’s session. The impact of a successful CSRF attack may range from minor to severe, depending upon the capabilities exposed by the vulnerable application and privileges of the user. An attacker may force the user to perform state-changing requests like transferring funds, changing their email address or password etc. However, if an administrative level account is affected, it may compromise the whole web application and associated sensitive data.
