CVE-2013-2287 Scanner Detail

The Uploader plugin for WordPress is a tool designed to help website administrators easily upload various types of files to their WordPress website. Its primary purpose is to provide a user-friendly interface and simplify the process of uploading files to the website. This plugin is popular among website administrators who need to frequently upload files and images to their WordPress site.

One of the vulnerabilities that has been discovered in the Uploader plugin is CVE-2013-2287. This type of vulnerability is known as a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. This vulnerability occurs due to insufficient input validation, allowing an attacker to inject their own malicious code into the targeted web application. In this case, the vulnerable code is found in the views/notify.php file, where an attacker can inject arbitrary web script or HTML using the "notify" or "blog" parameter.

If this vulnerability is exploited, it could lead to significant consequences for the targeted website.

This could result in a loss of user trust and potentially even legal action against the website.
