===================
Technical details
===================

CP Polls plugin for wordpress is vulnerable to Persistent Cross-site scripting is not sanitizing the
values of the options before savinng to database. This issue can be exploited by an attacker with
CSRF by sending a malicious link to a wordpress administrator. If administrator clicks the link, the
action will be executed because there isn't CSRF protection.

=========================
Proof of Concept (html)
=========================

<html>
<!-- CSRF PoC - Burp Suite i0 SecLab plugin -->
<!-- We can find the Poll id into the source code of a post with a cp poll and looking for ´CP_Polls_id´.
We can find something like: <input type="hidden" name="CP_Polls_id" value="4" />
4 is the Poll's id, now we have the id and we can make a csrf attack.
