1. Advanced Order Export For WooCommerce

The Advanced Order Export for WooCommerce plugin, set up in over 100,000 sites, is susceptible to a Cross-Site Demand Forgery (CSRF) attack.

A Cross-Site Demand Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability emerges from a defect in a site plugin that permits an opponent to fool a site user into carrying out an unexpected action.

Site internet browsers typically contain cookies that tell a site that a user is registered and logged in. An enemy can presume the opportunity levels of an admin. This gives the enemy complete access to a website, exposes delicate consumer information, and so on.

This specific vulnerability can result in an export file download. The vulnerability description doesn’t describe what file can be downloaded by an enemy.
