The Paid Memberships Pro – Content Restriction, User Registration, & Paid Subscriptions plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to Sensitive Information Exposure in all versions up to, and including, 2.12.8 via the pmpro_member shortcode. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers, with contributor-level access and above, to extract potentially sensitive data about users by utilizing the shortcode to display user meta field.
