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' );
683-	add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_gdlr_lms_cancel_booking', 'gdlr_lms_cancel_booking' );
684-	function gdlr_lms_cancel_booking(){
685-		global $wpdb;
687-		$sql  = 'SELECT * FROM ' . $wpdb->prefix . 'gdlrpayment ';
688-		$sql .= 'WHERE id=' . $_POST['id'] . ' AND ';
689-		$sql .= '(payment_status=\'pending\' OR payment_status=\'submitted\' OR payment_status=\'reserved\')';
690-		$booked_course = $wpdb->get_row($sql);
691-		if( !empty($booked_course) ){
692-			$payment_info = unserialize($booked_course->payment_info);
694-			$course_options = gdlr_lms_get_course_options($booked_course->course_id);
695-			$course_options['booked-seat'] = intval($course_options['booked-seat']) - intval($payment_info['amount']);
696-			update_post_meta($booked_course->course_id, 'gdlr-lms-course-settings', wp_slash(json_encode($course_options, JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE)));
698-			$wpdb->delete( $wpdb->prefix . 'gdlrpayment', array('id'=>$_POST['id']), array('%d'));
699-		}
700-		die("");
701-	}
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".


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.
