Researcher Rafshanzani Suhada


The Automatic YouTube Gallery plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized plugin settings change due to a missing capability check on the ajax_callback_save_api_key and ajax_callback_delete_cache functions in versions up to, and including, 2.3.3. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers, with subscriber-level access and above, to update the plugin API key and delete the plugin cache.
