SiteLock Research Team Uncovers WordPress Plugin Vulnerability

The SiteLock Research Team will have many firsts as it develops. This week we’ll discuss the first reported and patched vulnerability the team found, a minor cross-site scripting vulnerability in Testimonial Slider.

The team has been working on putting together a new vulnerability research process.  During the creation of this process, we tested a not-so-randomly chosen WordPress plugin, Testimonial Slider.   Developed by SliderVilla.com, it displays customer testimonials in a responsive slider and has over 10,000 installs.  We chose Testimonial Slider for no other reason than it was a slider plugin after the recent Revolution Slider exploit.
