    Unintended files can be deleted by administrators using the plugin deletion functionality.
    Cross-site scripting (XSS) via video URL in YouTube embeds.
    Cross-site scripting (XSS) via taxonomy term names.
    Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) in Press This leading to excessive use of server resources.
