WordPress admin clickjacking
|wordpress-admin-clickjacking (69172)||Medium Risk|
WordPress could allow a remote attacker to hijack the clicking action of the victim, caused by the failure to prevent rendering for admin or login pages. By persuading a victim to visit a malicious Web site, a remote attacker could send a specially-crafted request to hijack the victim's click actions and possibly launch further attacks against the victim.
