A missing permission check in a form validation method in Acunetix Plugin allowed users with Overall/Read permission to initiate a connection test, sending an HTTP GET request to an attacker-specified URL, adding a /me suffix, returning whether the connection could be established and whether the HTTP response code is 200.
