Researcher Rafie Muhammad - Patchstack


The Elements kit Elementor addons plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized admin notice dismissal due to a missing capability check on the dismiss_ajax_call function in versions up to, and including, 2.9.0. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers, with subscriber-level access and above, to dismiss notices intended for admins. Version 2.9.1 addresses this while version 2.9.2 ensures these notices can only be viewed by admins.
