DESCRIPTION:
Sammy Forgit has discovered a vulnerability in the Annonces plugin
for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to
compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to the
wp-content/plugins/annonces/admin/theme.php script improperly
validating uploaded files, which can be exploited to execute
arbitrary PHP code by uploading a PHP file with e.g. an appended
".jpg" file extension.

Successful exploitation requires that Apache is not configured to
handle the mime-type for media files with e.g. a ".jpg" extension
(Configured to handle by default).

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.2.0.1. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Restrict access to the wp-content/plugins/annonces/medias/images/
folder (e.g. via .htaccess).

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Sammy Forgit, OpenSysCom.
