Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
A reflected Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability exists in the WP-SpamFree
Anti-Spam WordPress plugin. This vulnerability allows an attacker to
perform any action with the privileges of the target user. The affected
code is not protected with an anti-Cross-Site Request Forgery token.
Consequently, it can be exploited by luring the target user into
clicking a specially crafted link or visiting a malicious website (or
advertisement).

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

The vulnerability exists in the wp-spamfree.php file on line 6049:

$blacklist_keys_update = trim(stripslashes($_REQUEST['wordpress_comment_blacklist']));

In order to exploit this issue the target user must click a specially crafted link or visit a malicious website (or advertisement) and must be autenticated within WordPress.

In addition the WordPress specific blacklist can be cleared by using the request below and employing CSRF.
