    I am running some sites and set one up deliberatley with a vulnerable wordpress version to test some vulnrabilities.


    Since it is below version 4.8.3, it is vulnerable to an SQLi via [CVE-2017-16510](https://www.cvedetails.com/cve/CVE-2017-16510/). I understand how it exploits a “double prepare” method in PHP which doesn’t properly sanatize inputs. [Security Focus]([https://www.securityfocus.com/bid/101638/discuss](https://www.securityfocus.com/bid/101638/discuss)) says the exploit can be performed in a browser.


    What would the actual process for this exploit be? I tried adding `’` to some urls in an attempt to get an SQL error, but no luck. I am looking to test it from an attackers point of view, to see how the vuln works
