CVE-2024-1775 is a vulnerability found in the Nextend Social Login and Register plugin for WordPress, affecting all versions up to and including 3.1.12. The vulnerability allows unauthenticated attackers with subscriber-level account access to inject arbitrary web scripts using the 'error_description' parameter, leading to Reflected Cross-Site Scripting. Successful exploitation requires enabling "Debug mode" in the plugin's "Global Settings." It is possible for attackers to trick users into performing actions, such as clicking on a link, resulting in the execution of these injected scripts. In specific circumstances where an OAuth pre-authenticated higher-level user (e.g., administrator) is targeted, a critical impact scenario can be achieved by leveraging cross-site request forgery and social engineering techniques. Remediation of this vulnerability involves updating the Nextend Social Login and Register plugin to a version beyond 3.1.12 and disabling "Debug mode" in the plugin's settings.
