Secunia Advisory SA47529

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Cross Site Scripting, Exposure of sensitive information

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Count Per Day plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and disclose sensitive information.

1) Input passed to the "map" parameter in wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/map/map.php 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.

2) Input passed to the "f" parameter in wp-content/plugins/count-per-day/download.php (when "n" is set) is not properly verified before being used to display files. This can be exploited to disclose the contents of arbitrary files via directory traversal sequences.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 3.1. Prior versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 3.1.1.
