A vulnerability has been discovered in the TheCartPress plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed to e.g. the "tcp_name_post_1" parameter in admin/OptionsPostsList.php (when "tcp_options_posts_update" is set and "tcp_post_ids" is set to "1") is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.5 and reported in version 1.1.6 downloaded prior to 2011-12-31. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.1.6 released after 2011-12-31.
