Wordpress: Multiple Vulnerabilities in Simple Login Log Plugin

We discovered a vulnerability in a WordPress plugin called Simple Login Log Plugin.

Vulnerability: Authenticated Blind SQL Injection, Source IP Address Manipulation
Affected Version: 1.1.1 (below version may be affected as well)
Patched Version: Not available yet (vendor already contacted but no response)

Blind SQL Injection


Affected URL: http://localhost/wp-admin/users.php?page=login_log&orderby=ip&order=asc
Affected Parameters: orderby and order


Source IP Address Manipulation


This plugin records the user’s IP address that has successfully logged in, using X-Forwarded-For HTTP header field.

$values = array(
'uid' => $uid,
'user_login' => $user_login,
'user_role' => $user_role,
'time' => current_time('mysql'),
'ip' => isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR']) ? esc_attr($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR']) : esc_attr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']),
'login_result' => $this->login_success,
'data' => $serialized_data,
$format = array('%d', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s');
$this->save_data($values, $format);

Judging from line 6 above, we can put any value in the X-Forwarded-For field.
