I am the developer of Maps Marker Pro and this advisory is missing some important information:
regarding 1) in order to exploit this vulnerability, you need to have access to a WordPress admin account
regarding 2) this vulnerability can only be exploited if the according option is active
regarding 3) in order to exploit this vulnerability you need at least access to a WordPress contributor account
Producing secure software is important to me and once a (potential) vulnerability is identified, I make a new release ASAP. Anyway I would like to point out, that this advisory is misleading in the (potential) damage these vulnerabilities may cause. If you are using Maps Marker Pro, please always update to the latest version as soon as they released - this will not only get you the latest features and optimizations, but lets you also benefits from security patches and security hardenings.
