WordPress Ultimate CSV Importer User Table Extract



Due to lack of verification of a visitor's permissions, it is possible to execute the 'export.php' script included in the default installation of the Ultimate CSV Importer plugin and retrieve the full contents of the user table in the WordPress installation. This results in full disclosure of usernames, hashed passwords and email addresses for all users.

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/gather/wp_ultimate_csv_importer_user_extract
msf auxiliary(wp_ultimate_csv_importer_user_extract) > show actions
msf auxiliary(wp_ultimate_csv_importer_user_extract) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(wp_ultimate_csv_importer_user_extract) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(wp_ultimate_csv_importer_user_extract) > 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.
