WordPress Processing Embed Plugin 0.5 - Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability

Description
This Processing Embed plugin's "pluginurl" parameter is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability. It fails to properly clean up user-supplied input. An attacker may execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an user in the context of the affected site. In this way the attacker can steal cookie-based authentication credentials. Other attacks are also possible.
Solution
Update the plugin.
