WordPress WPS Hide Login Login Page Revealer



This module exploits a bypass issue with WPS Hide Login version <= 1.9. WPS Hide Login is used to make a new secret path to the login page, however a 'GET' request to '/wp-admin/options.php' with a referer will reveal the hidden path.

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/scanner/http/wp_wps_hide_login_revealer
msf auxiliary(wp_wps_hide_login_revealer) > show actions
msf auxiliary(wp_wps_hide_login_revealer) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(wp_wps_hide_login_revealer) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(wp_wps_hide_login_revealer) > 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.
