Warnings

This recommendation applies to version 2.4 of this plugin, but the most recent version is 2.5.2. These findings may no longer be correct.

Findings

  • This plugin interacts with WooCommerce. That plugin was not tested in conjunction with this plugin.
  • It is possible to set the Elasticsearch hostname/username/password via a setting in /wp-admin/ and via a constant (EP_HOST). When the host is set via a constant, the host is shown to admin users. This potentially exposes sensitive credentials to people who are not permitted to know them.
  • No other issues found.
