CVE-2015-2755 Scanner Detail

The AB Google Map Travel (AB-MAP) plugin is a tool designed for use with the WordPress platform. This plugin allows users to add customized maps to their WordPress website with ease. With the AB-MAP plugin, users can manually add markers, customize map colors, and even add their own KML files. This functionality makes AB-MAP an essential tool for businesses, bloggers, and other WordPress website owners who wish to display visual data on their website. 

One vulnerability that has been detected in the AB-MAP plugin is the CVE-2015-2755 vulnerability. This vulnerability permits attackers to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks, which can lead to an attacker hijacking the authentication of administrators and carrying out cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. The vulnerability arises from the lat (Latitude), long (Longitude), map_width, map_height, or zoom (Map Zoom) parameters in the ab_map_options page to wp-admin/admin.php.

When this vulnerability is exploited, it can lead to severe implications for the website owner and users. An attacker could gain access to highly sensitive user data, hijack user accounts, or even steal website login credentials. With the advent of GDPR and similar privacy regulations, non-compliance with such standards could lead to legal repercussions and, most importantly, brand damage.
