Missing Authorization
CVE CVE-2022-0363
CVSS 6.5 (Medium)
Publicly Published March 29, 2022
Last Updated December 5, 2022
Researcher Krzysztof Zając - CERT PL


The myCred WordPress plugin before 2.4.4 does not have any authorisation and CSRF checks in the mycred-tools-import-export AJAX action, allowing any authenticated users, such as subscribers, to call it and import mycred setup, thus creating badges, managing points or creating arbitrary posts.
