CVE-2024-1449 is a vulnerability found in the Master Slider - Responsive Touch Slider plugin for WordPress, affecting all versions up to and including 3.9.5. The vulnerability allows authenticated attackers with contributor-level and above permissions to inject arbitrary web scripts through the plugin's ms_slide shortcode, leading to stored cross-site scripting (XSS). This means that whenever a user accesses an injected page, the injected scripts will execute. The risk score of this vulnerability is 25, with a base severity of MEDIUM. Remediation for this vulnerability involves updating the plugin to a version beyond 3.9.5 to ensure sufficient input sanitization and output escaping are implemented. If left unaddressed, this vulnerability could potentially expose an organization's website to unauthorized script injection and compromise user security.
