Sharebar Plugin for WordPress 'sharebar-admin.php' 'status' Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of the Sharebar plugin for WordPress installed on the
remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to
a failure properly sanitize user input to the 'status' parameter of
the 'sharebar-admin.php' script before using it to generate dynamic
HTML output. An attacker can leverage this issue to inject arbitrary
HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed within the
security context of the affected site.

Note that the plugin is reportedly also affected by an associated SQL
injection vulnerability; however, Nessus has not checked for this
