Krzysztof Burghardt has discovered a vulnerability in the Search Unleashed plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed to the parameter "s" when performing a search is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in an administrator's browser session in context of an affected site when the search log is viewed.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 0.2.10.
Solution: Reportedly, this will be fixed in version 0.2.11.
