CVE-2022-4260 Scanner Detail

The WP-Ban plugin for WordPress is a tool used by website administrators to control and manage user access. It allows them to ban specific IP addresses or users from accessing their site, providing an essential security measure against potential attackers. This plugin is commonly used in WordPress installations with multiple users or on websites that have been previously targeted by malicious attacks.

CVE-2022-4260 is a vulnerability detected in the WP-Ban plugin before version 1.69.1. This vulnerability arises from the plugin's failure to sanitize, and escape some of its settings, potentially allowing high privilege users like administrators, to carry out Stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks. Even when the unfiltered_html capability is disallowed, these attacks can be executed, posing a serious security threat to WordPress websites that rely on this plugin for user management.

When exploited, the CVE-2022-4260 vulnerability can lead to serious consequences for website owners. XSS attacks can steal sensitive information from users and make them vulnerable to identity theft.
