The Give - Donation Plugin plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to privilege escalation due to an insufficient capability check when updating default roles in versions up to, and including, 2.33.0. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers with Give Manager privileges to elevate their privileges to those of an administrator by setting the default role in the plugin's settings.
