DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in The Guardian News Feed plugin
for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct
cross-site request forgery attacks.

The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP
requests without performing proper validity checks to verify the
requests. This can be exploited to e.g. conduct script insertion
attacks when a logged-in administrator visits a specially crafted web
page.

The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 0.4.2.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 0.4.2.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
