wide variety of actions, such as stealing Administrators' session
tokens, or performing arbitrary actions on their behalf. This issue can

This issue exists due to the lack of validation on the url attributed of the wc_button shortcode. A Contributor or higher can create a button with a specially crafted Javascript payload. When a (logged) on user clicks on this button, the payload will be executed. This bypasses the unfiltered_html privilege of WordPress, which is normally only assigned to Editors & Administrators.

Proof of concept

[wc_button type="primary" url="javascript:alert(1)" title="Visit Site" target="self" position="float"]Sample Content[/wc_button]
