Modula <= 2.7.4 - Incomplete Authorization via 'save_image' and 'save_images'

Improper Authorization
CVSS 2.2 (Low)
Publicly Published September 10, 2023
Last Updated January 22, 2024


The Modula plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized modification of data due to an incomplete capability check on the 'save_image' and 'save_images' functions in versions up to, and including, 2.7.4. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers with the 'edit_others_posts' but not the 'edit_posts' capability to save images. Note that this would only be considered a vulnerability on extremely unusual configurations.
