TK Google Fonts GDPR Compliant <= 2.2.11 - Missing Authorization to Font Deletion

Missing Authorization
CVE CVE-2023-5823
CVSS 4.3 (Medium)
Publicly Published October 24, 2023
Last Updated January 22, 2024


The TK Google Fonts GDPR Compliant plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to unauthorized modification of data due to a missing capability check on the tk_google_fonts_delete_font function in all versions up to, and including, 2.2.11. This makes it possible for authenticated attackers, with subscriber-level permissions and above, to deelete arbitrary Google fonts. We believe CVE-2023-5823 may be misreported as a CSRF as there is no nonce check that was added in 2.2.12, but instead a capability check.
