Title: WordPress Trashbin Plugin 'mtb_undelete' Parameter Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability

Severity: MODERATE

Description:

Trashbin is a plugin for WordPress that allows users to keep deleted posts or messages.

The Trashbin plugin is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input. This issue affects the 'mtb_undelete' parameter of the 'trashbin.php' script.

An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may help the attacker steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

Affected Products:

  • WordPress Trashbin 0.1
