Description


A vulnerability has been discovered in the TheCartPress plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

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.
