CVSS 3.1 Score 6.4 of 10 (medium)


Published Mar 29, 2024


CVE-2024-2936 is a vulnerability found in the Sydney Toolbox plugin for WordPress, affecting all versions up to and including 1.26. The vulnerability allows authenticated attackers with contributor-level access or higher to inject arbitrary web scripts into pages by exploiting the insufficient input sanitization and output escaping on user supplied attributes, specifically the _id attribute of widgets. This can result in stored cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, where the injected scripts execute whenever a user accesses an affected page. The risk score for this vulnerability is 25, with a base severity of MEDIUM. Remediation should involve updating the Sydney Toolbox plugin to a version that includes proper input sanitization and output escaping to mitigate the potential danger it poses to organizations using WordPress with this plugin installed.
