Restrict Content <= 3.2.2 - Missing Authorization to Notice Dismissal

Missing Authorization
CVSS 5.3 (Medium)
Publicly Published June 23, 2023
Last Updated June 23, 2023


The Restrict Content plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized notice dismissal due to a missing capability check on the rcp_ajax_dismissed_notice_handler() function in versions up to, and including, 3.2.2. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers with subscriber-level access and above to dismiss plugin notices.
