Yesterday we noted that the developer of the WordPress security plugin Security Ninja plugin isn’t doing a great job with the security of their plugins. In the latest example, they could have spotted an issue before we are publicly disclosing it by simply checking the plugin with our Plugin Security Checker, which identifies possible security issues in WordPress plugins. While looking into the details of another instance of them fixing a vulnerability we had identified in one of their plugins while working on an improvement to the Plugin Security Checker, this time with the plugin Nifty Coming Soon & Maintenance page we ran the plugin through our tool and saw that it got flagged for possibly including a vulnerable version of the plugin Option Tree:
This post provides the details of a vulnerability in the WordPress plugin Nifty Coming Soon & Maintenance page not discovered by us, where the discoverer hadn’t provided the details needed for us to confirm the vulnerability while we were adding it to the data set for our service, so its contents are limited to customers of that service. If you are not currently a customer, you can sign up for free here and then you can view the contents of the post. There are a lot of other reason that you will want to sign up beyond access to posts like this one, including that you would have already been warned about this vulnerability if your website was vulnerable due to it.
