    Hi Sudar

    WordPress just released 4.8.3 to plug a SQL injection vulnerability.

    Here is the blog by the security researcher who seems to have found the vulnerability :

    At the bottom of the blog a contributor has commented :

    If you want to know if any plugin or theme will may have any trouble you can use the following commands: grep -r ‘$wpdb->prepare’ . | grep ‘$_POST’ grep -r ‘$wpdb->prepare’ . | grep ‘$_GET’ grep -r ‘$wpdb->prepare’ . | grep ‘esc_sql’.

    Running the above returns the $wpdb->prepare statement in the code for your Email Log plugin

    Just thought you might want to look at this, hope it helps, many thanks
