CVE-2024-28850 is a vulnerability affecting WP Crontrol, a plugin used to manage cron events on WordPress websites. While the feature itself does not have any known vulnerabilities, there is a potential for remote code execution (RCE) if it is specifically targeted in conjunction with another vulnerability like SQL injection. Exploitation of this vulnerability requires certain preconditions to be met, such as a writable SQL injection vulnerability in any plugin, theme, or WordPress core, a compromised database at the hosting level, or the ability to update arbitrary options in the wp_options table. As a mitigation measure, it is recommended to upgrade WP Crontrol to version 1.
