WordPress iframe plugin version 3.0 suffers from a stored cross site scripting vulnerability.
Details ================ Software: iframe Version: 3.0 Homepage: http://wordpress.org/plugins/iframe/ Advisory report: https://security.dxw.com/advisories/stored-xss-in-iframe-allows-less-privileged-users-to-do-almost-anything-an-admin-can/ CVE: Awaiting assignment CVSS: 5.5 (Medium; AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:N) Description ================ Stored XSS in iframe allows less privileged users to do almost anything an admin can Vulnerability ================ Users without the unfiltered_html capability are able to insert arbitrary HTML into pages and thus exceed the privileges they were granted. Proof of concept ================ Insert the following into a post: [iframe src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/4qsGTXLnmKs\" width=\"100%\" height=\"500\" onload=\"alert(1)\"] Mitigations ================ Disable the plugin until a new version is released that fixes this bug. The vendor has released version 4.0 in which onload is disabled, but the other ‘event’ attributes are still permitted, including onpageshow. A number of these event attributes could be used to execute this attack, so this issue is not resolved. Disclosure policy ================ dxw believes in responsible disclosure.
