WordPress Google Maps Plugin SQL Injection



This module exploits a SQL injection vulnerability in a REST endpoint registered by the WordPress plugin wp-google-maps between 7.11.00 and 7.11.17 (included). As the table prefix can be changed by administrators, set DB_PREFIX accordingly.

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_google_maps_sqli
msf auxiliary(wp_google_maps_sqli) > show actions
msf auxiliary(wp_google_maps_sqli) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(wp_google_maps_sqli) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(wp_google_maps_sqli) > 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.
