CVE-2022-45072 The premium WPML Multilingual plugin has a CSRF vulnerability.

CSRF is a type of web application vulnerability that occurs when an attacker tricks a user into performing an action on a web application that the user does not intend to perform. This can be accomplished by tricking the user into clicking a link or opening an unexpected or suspicious email. The WPML plugin is an online translation management system for WordPress. When you install the WPML plugin, you can choose to manage your site’s multilingual capabilities through a variety of languages. You can also choose to manage your site’s translations through a number of different plugins. The WPML plugin has the ability to sync a number of different translation files from other plugins or from the WordPress installation itself. As a result, any vulnerabilities in the other plugins installed on your site could potentially put your site’s translations at risk. This tutorial will show you how to protect your site’s translations by installing the WPML Security Scanner plugin.

Installing the WPML Security Scanner Plugin

Before installing the WPML Security Scanner plugin, you need to make sure that your site already has an active WordPress installation. If you do not have an active WordPress installation, you will need to create one first.
To install the WPML Security Scanner plugin, log in to your WordPress Dashboard and click on “Plugins” in the left-hand navigation bar. Search for “WPML Security Scanner” and click on the “Install Now” button. You can then activate the plugin from within your WPML management interface.

Installation of the WPML Security Scanner Plugin

You can install the WPML Security Scanner plugin by visiting the WordPress plugin directory. Once you have located the WPML Security Scanner plugin, click on the “Install Now” button to install it on your site. After clicking on the “Install Now” button, you will be prompted to activate the plugin following installation.
When prompted, you will need to give your administrator account login details so that they can access and manage your site. Leave this box unchecked if you are not an administrator or want someone else to manage your site’s translations.
After filling out the activation form, you will be shown a reminder that this plugin is only effective on sites with multilingual capabilities enabled. If you are not sure whether or not your site has multilingual capabilities enabled, contact an administrator of your site for assistance.
