RSS   Vulnerabilities for 'Page view count'   RSS



The Page View Count WordPress plugin before 2.4.15 does not sanitise and escape the post_ids parameter before using it in a SQL statement via a REST endpoint, available to both unauthenticated and authenticated users. As a result, unauthenticated attackers could perform SQL injection attacks



The Page View Count WordPress plugin before 2.4.9 does not escape the postid parameter of pvc_stats shortcode, allowing users with a role as low as Contributor to perform Stored XSS attacks. A post made by a contributor would still have to be approved by an admin to have the XSS triggered in the frontend, however, higher privilege users, such as editor could exploit this without the need of approval, and even when the blog disallows the unfiltered_html capability.
