CVE-2022-0236 The WP Import Export plugin is vulnerable to sensitive data disclosure due to a missing capability check on the download function.

A successful unauthenticated attack can result in the attacker gaining access to data which was meant to be hidden from prying eyes such as the ability to view or delete comments or post. This makes it especially important for WP users to protect all data on their site, especially data which could be used to gain access to other users.

Revert to the old API

WordPress 3.9 introduced a change to the API which will make it more difficult for unauthenticated attackers to gain access to data. The following code is designed to revert this new change as of December 20th, 2016.
if ( false === wp_doing_ajax() ) {
return false;
} else {
wp_doing_ajax();  
}

How to protect comments and posts?

The first step to protecting comments and posts is ensuring that you do not allow anonymous commenting on your WordPress site. This can be done by either setting the Comment author field to a specific user role or by using the Comment author field in conjunction with comment moderation. The WP Import Export WP plugin has a feature which allows you to export all of your blog data, including comments, posts, and users. That way, if any vulnerabilities are found in the WP Import Export WP plugin (either premium or free version), you will have a backup of all of your data which was supposed to be hidden from prying eyes such as the ability to view or delete comments or post.

A word of warning: If a plugin's security is compromised, you may lose your entire site if that plugin is not updated soon enough. In addition, plugins are not compatible with each other; every time a new widget is added, your website may break because of incompatibility issues. To avoid this, make sure you review all plugins before installing them on your website!
