CVE-2022-4447 Scanner Detail

Fontsy is a popular WordPress plugin that is used for customizing fonts on websites. It allows users to modify the typography of their website in a quick and easy manner, making it a favorite among website owners and developers. The plugin offers a user-friendly interface and has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times. As a result of its popularity, it has become an attractive target for hackers looking to exploit vulnerabilities for their own gain.

Recently, a vulnerability in Fontsy, known as CVE-2022-4447, was detected. This vulnerability exists in the plugin's failure to properly sanitize and escape a parameter before it is used in a SQL statement. This means that an attacker can inject malicious code into the parameter, which is then executed by the SQL statement. This could allow an attacker to gain unauthorized access to the website's database, steal sensitive information, or modify website content. As this vulnerability only requires unauthenticated access, it is particularly worrisome for website owners who may not realize that their website is at risk.

When exploited, this vulnerability can lead to a multitude of negative consequences. The ability for an attacker to gain unauthorized access to a website's database could lead to the theft of sensitive information such as customer data or financial information. Additionally, an attacker could use the vulnerability to modify website content, inserting malicious code or links that could harm visitors' devices or harvest their data. The costs associated with such an attack could be catastrophic for a business, including potential legal fees if sensitive information is compromised.
