The Orders Tracking for WooCommerce plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to Directory Traversal in versions up to, and including, 1.2.5 via the 'file_url' parameter when importing CSV files. This allows authenticated attackers, with administrator-level (manage_woocommerce) privileges and above, to read the contents of the first line of arbitrary files on the server, which can contain sensitive information.
