The Profile Builder plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized page creation due to a missing capability check on the wppb_create_form_pages() function called via an admin_init action in versions up to, and including, 3.9.7. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to trigger the initial page creation to support the plugin.
