WordPress Photo Gallery Unrestricted File Upload

Description

Photo Gallery Plugin for WordPress contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code. This flaw exists because the photo-gallery\photo-gallery.php script allows access to filemanager\UploadHandler.php. The post() method in UploadHandler.php does not properly verify or sanitize user-uploaded files. This module was tested on version 1.2.5.

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 exploit/unix/webapp/wp_photo_gallery_unrestricted_file_upload
msf exploit(wp_photo_gallery_unrestricted_file_upload) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(wp_photo_gallery_unrestricted_file_upload) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(wp_photo_gallery_unrestricted_file_upload) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(wp_photo_gallery_unrestricted_file_upload) > exploit

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.
