Relevanssi is a popular WordPress plugin used to enhance the search functionality on websites. It allows users to perform more precise and comprehensive searches within WordPress sites. The plugin is widely used by website administrators, bloggers, and businesses to improve user experience. It offers features like search result customization, logging search queries, and providing detailed search statistics. The vulnerability in question affects the query log export function.

The Information Disclosure vulnerability in the Relevanssi plugin for WordPress allows unauthorized access to query log data. This vulnerability exists due to a missing capability check in the plugin’s code. Attackers can exploit this to export query logs without authentication. The issue affects all versions up to and including 4.22.0.

The vulnerability is found in the Relevanssi plugin’s query log export functionality. Specifically, the endpoint /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php allows unauthenticated users to export query logs by sending a POST request with the parameter action=&relevanssi_export=1. The plugin fails to check if the user has the necessary capabilities to perform this action. Successful exploitation results in the download of a CSV file containing sensitive information such as user IDs and session IDs.

If exploited, this vulnerability can lead to unauthorized disclosure of sensitive data contained within the query logs. Attackers may gain access to user IDs, session IDs, and potentially other sensitive information logged by the Relevanssi plugin. This can compromise user privacy and lead to further security breaches if the data is misused.
