The Gift Vouchers plugin for WordPress is a popular tool used by online retailers and small businesses to create and sell digital gift vouchers. These vouchers can be customized, offer discounts, and include unique promotional codes for customers to use. This plugin helps businesses expand their customer base, increase sales, and enhance their marketing strategies.

However, the Gift Vouchers plugin has recently been detected with a critical security vulnerability: CVE-2018-16159.
