CVSS 3.1 Score 6.4 of 10 (medium)


Published Mar 13, 2024


CVE-2024-1409 is a vulnerability found in the Paid Membership Plugin, Ecommerce, User Registration Form, Login Form, User Profile & Restrict Content – ProfilePress plugin for WordPress. This vulnerability affects all versions up to and including 4.15.0 of the plugin. The issue is a result of insufficient input sanitization and output escaping on user supplied attributes, allowing authenticated attackers with contributor-level and above permissions to inject arbitrary web scripts through the plugin's [reg-select-role] shortcode. These injected scripts can execute whenever a user accesses the affected pages. The risk score for this vulnerability is 25 out of 100, with a base severity level of MEDIUM. To remediate this vulnerability, users should update the plugin to a version beyond 4.15.0 to ensure that adequate input sanitization and output escaping are implemented, mitigating the risk of stored cross-site scripting attacks.
