The Zephyr Project Manager plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to authorization bypass due to a missing capability check and lack of authentication/authorization on its AJAX endpoints in versions up to 3.2.55. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to utilize them. Additionally, user input is not properly sanitized leading to Stored Cross-Site Scripting.
