WordPress plugin “Simple Social Buttons” flaw lets hackers take over entire sites
Vulnerability found in social sharing plugin named “Simple Social Buttons,” installed on more than 40,000 WordPress sites.
WordPress site owners who are using the Simple Social Buttons plugin to support social media sharing features should update the plugin as soon as possible to plug a security hole that can be exploited to take over sites.
Luka Šikić, a developer and researcher at WordPress security firm WebARX, discovered the security issue last week and reported the problem to the plugin’s author.
He says that an attacker who can register new accounts on a site can exploit this vulnerability to make modifications to a WordPress site’s main settings, outside to what the plugin was initially meant to manage.
Users are advised to install Simple Social Buttons version 2.0.22, released last Friday, on February 8.
