MalCare, Blogvault, and WPRemote Plugins Patch Vulnerabilities Allowing Site Takeover Through Stolen API Credentials

Key takeaways from the article include:

  • The vulnerability in MalCare’s plugin arises from its use of broken cryptography to authenticate API requests from its remote servers to connected WordPress sites. This could allow attackers to create rogue admin users, upload random files to the site, and install and remove plugins.
  • The exploitation of this vulnerability requires a precondition, such as a site with a SQL injection vulnerability in a plugin, theme, or WordPress core, or a database compromised at the hosting level.
  • The same vulnerability also exists in WPRemote and Blogvault plugins, as they share the same code. Users of these plugins are advised to update to the latest versions as soon as possible.
