Summary

CVE-2023-6624 is a vulnerability found in the Import and export users and customers plugin for WordPress, affecting all versions up to and including 1.24.3. The vulnerability is due to insufficient input sanitization and output escaping on user supplied attributes, making it possible for authenticated attackers with contributor-level and above permissions to inject arbitrary web scripts into pages.

The vulnerability has a risk score of 26 and a base severity of MEDIUM according to NVD, with an exploitability score of 2.3. The recommended remediation for this vulnerability is to update the plugin to a version that includes proper input sanitization and output escaping mechanisms.
