Stored Xss

Reported by: wildfighter0481's profile wildfighter0481 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.2.2
Component: General Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) allows an attacker to execute a dynamic script (Javascript, VbScript) in the context of the application. This allows several different attack opportunities, mostly hijacking the current session of the user or changing the look of the page by changing the HTML on the fly to steal the user's credentials. This happens because the input entered by a user has been interpreted as HTML/Javascript/VbScript by the browser.

Step To Reproduce:

1) Select theme from theme store i choose social-care-lite theme
2) Go to menus options and add menus
3) then change menus name to <script>alert(555)</script>
4) publish page and refresh it
5) and execute xss

Hi and welcome on WordPress Trac,

Security related tickets should not be reported on Trac but on HackerOne. You probably missed it but there was an information message about that in the "new trac ticket" screen.

Worth noting this is not a real security issue since administrators or editors are able to post arbitrary JavaScript.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
