The remote WordPress application has a plugin installed that has multiple vulnerabilities.


The WordPress application running on the remote host has a version of the 'GDPR Cookie Consent' plugin that is prior to 1.8.3. It is, therefore, affected by authenticated stored XSS and privilege escalation.
