High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered multiple XSS vulnerabilities in Events Manager WordPress plugin, which can be exploited to perform Cross-Site Scripting attacks.
1.1 The vulnerability exists due to insufficient filtration of user-supplied data in "scope" HTTP GET parameter passed to "/index.php" script. A remote attacker can trick user to open a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in browser in context of the vulnerable website.
<form action="http://[host]/?event=1" method="post" name="askform">
Vulnerabilities 1.3 and 1.4 will work only against unauthorized (not logged-in) users. Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities also requires that event with id = 1 has turned-on registration.
