GD Rating System Pro 2.1.1

GD Rating System Pro 2.1.1 is a new, minor version that includes a number of updates and fixes, including a fix for a low severity XSS (cross-site scripting) security issue.

This version includes updated code for validating rating item requests, updates to posts addon and additional protection for all form files from direct loading. As for the fixes, few issues with badge/symbol rendering are fixed, some log issues related to ’emote this’ method are also fixed.

Most important fix is for low severity XSS security issue. File log.php in ‘forms’ folder was not properly filtering one query argument, allowing to execute javascript code. In this case, this XSS issue can’t cause any damage, but, all security issue must be fixed, so this problem is fixed and changes are made to prevent potentially similar problems in the future.

If you find any issues with the plugin, please use the support forum to report them.

    • Open Help area on the WP Rest API settings page in the plugin settings, there you can see all added endpoints. Also, from the Rating Items panel, for each item you can see link to open WP Rest API URL for that item.
