WordPress custom-contact-forms Plugin SQL Upload



The WordPress custom-contact-forms plugin <= allows unauthenticated users to download a SQL dump of the plugins database tables. It's also possible to upload files containing SQL statements which will be executed. The module first tries to extract the WordPress table prefix from the dump and then attempts to create a new admin user.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/admin/http/wp_custom_contact_forms
msf auxiliary(wp_custom_contact_forms) > show actions
msf auxiliary(wp_custom_contact_forms) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(wp_custom_contact_forms) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(wp_custom_contact_forms) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
