Vulnerability: CVE-2020-5899

In NGINX Controller 3.0.0-3.4.0, recovery code required to change a user’s password is transmitted and stored in the database in plain text, which allows an attacker who can intercept the database connection or have read access to the database, to request a password reset using the email address of another registered user then retrieve the recovery code.

It's possible to leave a comment as registered users to the site, accessing through social, wordpress account or as anonymous users. If you want to leave a comment as an anonymous user you will be notified by email of a possible response only if you enter the email address (optional). The insertion of any data in the comment fields is totally optional. Whoever decides to insert any data accepts the treatment of these last ones for the inherent purposes of the service that is the answer to the comment and the strictly necessary communications.
