David Kierznowski has reported a vulnerability in the AdSense-Deluxe plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to adsense-deluxe.php allowing administrators to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to change certain settings by enticing a logged-in administrator to visit a malicious site.
Solution: Do not visit untrusted sites while being logged on to WordPress.
