-- Description --

This stored XSS vulnerability allows any authenticated wordpress user
to inject malicious code via the name of the uploaded file:
e.g. <svg onload=3D3Dalert(0)>.jpg

The vulnerability exists because the file name is not properly sanitized
and this can lead to malicious code injection that will be executed on the
target=3DE2=3D80=3D99s browser

-- Proof of Concept --

1. The attacker creates a new download package via the plugin's menu
and uploads a file with the name: <svg onload=3D3Dalert(0)>.jpg

2. The stored XSS can be triggered when an authenticated user (e.g. admin)
attempts to edit this download package

-- Solution --

Upgrade to the latest version
