CVE-2022-0533 Scanner Detail

Ditty, formerly known as Ditty News Ticker, is a WordPress plugin developed by Metaphor Creations. It is designed to provide WordPress site owners with a versatile news ticker tool, enabling them to display news, announcements, or other information in a scrolling format. This plugin is widely used for its ability to customize and control the display of dynamic content, making it a popular choice for websites looking to engage their audience with real-time updates or important notices.

The vulnerability specifically exists within the plugin's handling of the 'tab' parameter in its settings page. By crafting a URL that includes a malicious script in the 'tab' parameter, an attacker can trigger the execution of the script when the page is viewed by an administrator or other user. This could lead to unauthorized actions being performed on behalf of the user, theft of session tokens, or redirecting the user to a malicious site.

Exploiting this vulnerability could lead to a range of adverse effects, including but not limited to, stealing of sensitive information, hijacking user sessions, defacement of the website, and spreading of malware. Given that the attack can be launched via a crafted URL, it poses a significant risk to website administrators and users, potentially compromising the security and integrity of the affected site.
