Instant Images <= 6.1.0 - Authenticated (Author+) Arbitrary Options Update

Missing Authorization
CVE CVE-2024-0869
CVSS 8.8 (High)
Publicly Published January 29, 2024
Last Updated May 1, 2024
Researcher Sean Murphy


The Instant Images – One Click Image Uploads from Unsplash, Openverse, Pixabay and Pexels plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized arbitrary options update due to an insufficient check that neglects to verify whether the updated option belongs to the plugin on the instant-images/license REST API endpoint in all versions up to, and including, 6.1.0. This makes it possible for authors and higher to update arbitrary options. CVE-2024-33569 appears to be a duplicate of this issue.
