Elegant Themes Divi/Divi Builder/Extra/Bloom/Monarch Security Vulnerability

This won’t be a typical full disclosure post. I will release that after sufficient time has passed to allow users to upgrade. The most I will say now is that logged in users had access to more than they should have. If your site does not have additional untrusted users this is not a major issue for you. Though everyone should upgrade immediately.

On 2/10/2016 I discovered a potential security issue with Elegant Themes Divi theme. Since I am not a customer of theirs I had some issues getting in touch with someone to disclose the information to, but after a few emails and a Twitter exchange I was able to convey the information.

In the interim, Elegant Themes had Securi do a complete code analysis to check for further issues and apparently they did not discover anything further than I already had.

On 2/17/2016 Elegant Themes released updated versions and contacted their customer list to tell them to upgrade. I haven’t seen the exact email sent.

I believe a customer of theirs tweeted out about the issue. I was going to wait to post this until Elegant Themes had a chance to do their own release.

I have not seen the updated code, but based on the description received it sounds like the issue should be resolved.
