Security Advisory

This security advisory describes one high risk vulnerability.

1) SQL injection

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 7.9 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: N/A

CWE-ID: CWE-89 - Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command ('SQL Injection')

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL queries in database.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data in "/wp-content/plugins/groundhogg/includes/admin/tools/class-wpgh-export-bulk-job.php" file. A remote authenticated attacker can send a specially crafted request to the affected application and execute arbitrary SQL commands within the application database.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to read, delete, modify data in database and gain complete control over the affected application.

Mitigation
