CVE-2022-1906 Scanner Detail

The Copyright Proof plugin for WordPress is a tool used to prove ownership of copyrighted material on a website. This plugin allows the website owner to display a digital proof of copyright on their website, reassuring their audience of the originality of their content. The plugin accomplishes this by creating a digital fingerprint of the website's content and storing it in a database for future reference.

The CVE-2022-1906 vulnerability detected in the Copyright Proof plugin for WordPress is a Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. This vulnerability arises because the plugin does not properly sanitize and escape a parameter before outputting it back. This parameter is available through an AJAX action that is accessible to both authenticated and unauthenticated users. When a specific setting is enabled, an attacker can inject malicious code into the parameter, leading to a reflected XSS attack.

Exploiting this vulnerability can lead to a range of consequences, depending on the attacker's motives and the website's content. If the victim is a large enterprise, the attacker can use the XSS attack to gain access to sensitive data, plant malware, or steal credentials. If the victim is an individual, the attacker might use the XSS attack to redirect the victim to a phishing site or to cause damage to the website.
