Researcher Mika


The Admin Block Country plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to Cross-Site Request Forgery in versions up to, and including, 7.1.4. This is due to missing or incorrect nonce validation on the 'admin_block_country_initial_page' function which only performs a nonce check on some actions. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to block countries or update country blocking methods via a forged request granted they can trick a site administrator into performing an action such as clicking on a link.
