WordPress Plugin 'ThemeGrill Demo Importer' 1.3.4 < 1.6.3 Database Wipe and Auth Bypass

High Nessus Plugin ID 133856


The remote WordPress application has an outdated plugin installed that contains a database wipe and auth bypass vulnerability.


The WordPress application running on the remote host has the 'ThemeGrill Demo Importer' plugin that is 1.3.4 or later, but prior to 1.6.3. It is, therefore, vulnerable to an missing authentication check that allows an unauthenticated user to wipe the entire database to its default state and then automatically be logged in as an administrator.


Update to ThemeGrill Demo Importer Plugin 1.6.3 or later or remove the plugin through the administrative dashboard.
