The Woodmart Core plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to privilege escalation due to insufficient validation in its social login functionality in versions up to, and including, 1.0.36. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to supply a valid payload to the 'opauth' parameter and authenticate as any user on the site, including administrators.

Wordfence blocked 80 attacks targeting this vulnerability in the past 24 hours.
