    Hi @qasuar,

    Thanks a lot for the report, I have reported this to our developers and they will look into it asap.

    I’m not expert in this part but if I understand this correctly taking advantage of this is only possible if you have admin access already?

    Best regards,

    Hi @qasuar

    Thank you for the report, but I have one doubt because I can not (partial) reproduce this.

    Could you re-test it, but first you need just log out from this site, from this browser or use another browser (without logged wp-user on target site).

    This code “works” when you are logged ( a cookie is sent) and it is a small vulnerability and I need to add nonces, to avoid this situation, but basically, you are logged to the target site and you have privileges to add a sidebar.

    I can reproduce this problem when I’m logged in, but when I’m logged out – I can not.

    Could you confirm?

    hi @qasuar

    Thank you again 😉

    Could you check the new version? CSRF vulnerability should be removed in version.

    Thank you again!




    Nice job @iworks 🙂

    Sorry for the delay but I’m not active here so I didn’t see these comments

    BTW great job 😉
