Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall

Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities can affect Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall. This is due to the fact that it doesn’t effectively sanitise user-supplied input. An attacker could take advantage of this flaw to run any script they want in the context of the website in the browser of a careless user. In addition to launching additional attacks, it enables the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials. Version 4.17.29 of the WordPress Plugin Anti-Malware Security and Brute-Force Firewall is weak (prior versions may also be affected).
