Support » Plugin: Leaflet Maps Marker (Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing Maps) » Leaflet Wikitude SQL injection

  • Resolved zerpex



    I just want to inform you guys, that Leaflet-wikitude.php is open for any kind of SQL injection, maybe it would be nice to fix 🙂

    the above get request have been seen on multiple blogs running this plugin, what it does, is to select the user_activation_key from the wp_users table, why is this useful?

    You see, people can request a password reset, this will add this user_activation_key to the database, if people can inject the site, to get access to this activation key, it will be possible to get into a WP site, and do weird stuff.

    So please, take a look at the leaflet-wikitude file, and protect it against SQL injection. This is a serious security issue.

    This was a known issue (although I couldnt reproduce this on my server) and is already fixed with v3.5 – please update your installations…
    Thanks anyway for reporting!

    Where can I check the version if I don’t have admin access (only shell), what I see in the readme.txt is:

    Contributors: harmr
    Plugin Name: Leaflet Maps Marker

    The above, the Stable tag: 3.5 is one of the sites that got hacked, during SQL injection.

    To forum administrators: please edit the first post from this thread removing the info on how this – already fixed with v3.5 – security issue can be exploited. As many users dont upgrade that quickly, I think that this might be better for security overall.


    Hi Robert,

    I removed the example, sorry

    Hi Luca,
    You already have v3.5 installed where this issue is fixed – the Kind of attackiert you described is not possible with this version anymore as I make a string replacement off all Charakters for layer or marker Parameter now

    Okay, thanks.

    Let’s hope this is fixed! 😀 Because I know a lot of people use the plugin (It’s a awesome plugin btw), so high security is important IMO

    Security is an important issue for me. The plugin has been audited in the past already, but as I see security as a process, I will always try to improve it…
