Unauthenticated SQL Injection in Good Layers LMS Plugin <= 2.1.4
================================================================
Plugin URL: https://codecanyon.net/item/good-lms-learning-management-system-wp-plugin/9033850
Following is the vulnerable code in file "goodlayers-lms/include/lightbox-form.php" from line 682 to 701
================================================================
Start Vulnerable Code
================================================================
682- add_action( 'wp_ajax_gdlr_lms_cancel_booking', 'gdlr_lms_cancel_booking' );

End Vulnerable Code

Line 682 means that function "gdlr_lms_cancel_booking" can be called using "/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php" by having any low privileged account such as subscriber or contributor. However the "nopriv" in line 683 means that the same function "gdlr_lms_cancel_booking" can also be called as an unauthenticated user. Following URL means that an attacker is already inside function "gdlr_lms_cancel_booking".
http://www.example.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=gdlr_lms_cancel_booking
SQL Injection on line 688 is pretty simple to understand that an arbitrary user input in POST Request is sent straight into the MySQL Query as variable "id"
$sql .= 'WHERE id=' . $_POST['id'] . ' AND ';
Following are the Request Headers as POC which demonstrates MySQL SLEEP Query.
