https://sumofpwn.nl/advisory/2016/stored_cross_site_scripting_vulnerability_in_wp_live_chat_support_wordpress_plugin.html

The vulnerability exists in the file wp-live-chat-support/functions.php (line 1233), which is called in the file wp-live-chat-support/wp-live-chat-support.php (line 602):

wp-live-chat-support/wp-live-chat-support.php:

600 if ($_POST['action'] == "wplc_user_send_offline_message") {
601 if(function_exists('wplc_send_offline_msg')){ wplc_send_offline_msg($_POST['name'], $_POST['email'], $_POST['msg'], $_POST['cid']); }
602 if(function_exists('wplc_store_offline_message')){ wplc_store_offline_message($_POST['name'], $_POST['email'], $_POST['msg']); }
603 do_action("wplc_hook_offline_message",array(
604 "cid"=>$_POST['cid'],
605 "name"=>$_POST['name'],
606 "email"=>$_POST['email'],
607 "url"=>get_site_url(),
608 "msg"=>$_POST['msg']
609 )
610 );
611 }

wp-live-chat-support/functions.php:

1206 function wplc_store_offline_message($name, $email, $message){
1207 global $wpdb;
1208 global $wplc_tblname_offline_msgs;
1209
1210 $wplc_settings = get_option('WPLC_SETTINGS');
1211
1212 if(isset($wplc_settings['wplc_record_ip_address']) && $wplc_settings['wplc_record_ip_address'] == 1){
1213 if(isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR']) && $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'] != '') {
1214 $ip_address = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];
1215 } else {
1216 $ip_address = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
1217 }
1218 $offline_ip_address = $ip_address;
1219 } else {
1220 $offline_ip_address = "";
1221 }
1222
1223
1224 $ins_array = array(
1225 'timestamp' => current_time('mysql'),
1226 'name' => $name,
1227 'email' => $email,
1228 'message' => $message,
1229 'ip' => $offline_ip_address,
1230 'user_agent' => $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']
1231 );
1232
1233 $rows_affected = $wpdb->insert( $wplc_tblname_offline_msgs, $ins_array );
1234 return;
1235 }

The vulnerability can be exploited using a specially crafted POST request. The victim needs view the WP Live Chat Offline Messages page to trigger the Cross-Site Scripting payload. It should be noted taht the offline message functionality is available even if there is a logged on chat user present.
