The Debug Log Manager plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized loss of data due to a missing capability check on the clear_log() function hooked via AJAX in all versions up to, and including, 2.2.1. This makes it possible for attackers, with subscriber-level access and above, to clear the debug logs.
