CVE-2022-2219 Scanner Detail

Unyson is a framework designed for WordPress, providing developers and website owners with a set of tools to enhance their sites. It includes a drag-and-drop page builder, a slew of premium extensions, and options that allow for significant customization and functionality enhancement. Unyson is developed by the team at Brizy and is widely used for creating responsive WordPress themes. It aims to simplify the website development process, offering an intuitive interface for crafting complex layouts without requiring deep coding knowledge. This plugin is utilized across a broad range of websites, from simple blogs to complex eCommerce platforms.

Specifically, the flaw in Unyson allows for Reflected XSS attacks through manipulated URLs that include malicious JavaScript code. When an administrator visits the affected page, the script executes within their browser, leading to possible compromise of their session or other malicious activities. The vulnerability is particularly concerning because it does not require the attacker to have authenticated access to the WordPress dashboard. Instead, it could be exploited by tricking an administrator into clicking a specially crafted link.

Exploiting this XSS vulnerability could allow attackers to perform a range of malicious activities, including stealing session cookies, redirecting the admin to phishing sites, or even taking over the admin's account. This could lead to unauthorized changes to the site, disclosure of sensitive information, or distribution of malware to site visitors. Given the potential for widespread impact, addressing this vulnerability promptly is critical for maintaining the security and integrity of websites using Unyson.
