g30rg3_x has discovered a vulnerability in the Permalinks Migration plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. conduct script insertion attacks against the PermalinksMigration page.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not browse untrusted websites while logged on to WordPress.
