WordPress WP-reCAPTCHA Plugin HTML Injection and Cross Site Request Forgery Vulnerabilities

The WP-reCAPTCHA plugin for WordPress is prone to multiple HTML-injection vulnerabilities and a cross-site request-forgery vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

Exploiting these issues may allow a remote attacker to perform certain administrative actions, gain unauthorized access to the affected application, delete certain data, execute arbitrary script or HTML code within the context of the browser, and steal cookie-based authentication credentials. Other attacks are also possible.
