Researcher Rafie Muhammad - Patchstack


The Dokan plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to SQL Injection via multiple parameters in versions up to, and including, 3.7.12 due to insufficient escaping on the user supplied parameters and lack of sufficient preparation on the existing SQL query. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers with vendor-level access, and above, to append additional SQL queries into already existing queries that can be used to extract sensitive information from the database.
