Subject: Re: [FD] Wordpress Content Text Slider on Post 6.8 - Persistent
	Vulnerability

The POST request contains a CSRF nonce that is validated by the server and
an administrator user is the only role that is able to use the plugin (at
least by default).

Only an administrator user is able to execute JavaScript using the issue
you described due to the limitations I mentioned above.

An administrator user already has the permission to embed JavaScript and
execute PHP within WordPress as long as they have a valid CSRF nonce.

This is a none issue IMO, although it is recommended that the plugin does
sanitise user input and encode user output. But in its current form I can
not see how this is exploitable.
