A vulnerability has been discovered in the WP-RecentComments plugin for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.
Input passed via the "id" parameter to index.php (when "action" is set to "rc-content") is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.0.7. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 2.1.1.
