W3 Total Cache Plugin for WordPress < 0.9.5 Server-Side Request Forgery


The WordPress W3 Total Cache Plugin installed on the remote host is affected by a server-side request forgery (SSRF) vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input.

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
