Info:  
  
GigPress is a powerful WordPress plugin designed for musicians and other  
performers. Manage all of your upcoming and past performances right from  
within the WordPress admin, and display them on your site using simple  
shortcodes, PHP template tags, or the GigPress widget on your  
WordPress-powered website.  
  
Details:  
  
  
The user must have "contributer" priv atleast or whatever role the admin  
decides would be suitable for event submission, failure to sanitize the  
"Notes" field in the "Add A Show" section under "GigPress" Dashboard allows  
an attacker to inject malicious HTML code, attacking any user viewing the  
page where the malicious show is posted.  
  
POC:  
  
<script>alert('w00t');</script>  
  
Solution:  
  
Upgrade to latest plug-in version
