DESCRIPTION:
Sammy Forgit has discovered a vulnerability in the Famous and Deep
Blue themes for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people
to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to the
wp-content/themes/famous/megaframe/megapanel/inc/upload.php and
wp-content/themes/deep-blue/megaframe/megapanel/inc/upload.php
scripts allowing the upload of files with arbitrary extensions to a
folder inside the webroot. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary
PHP code by uploading a malicious PHP script.

The vulnerability is confirmed in Famous theme version 2.0.5 and Deep
Blue theme version 1.9.2. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Restrict access to the
wp-content/themes/famous/megaframe/megapanel/inc/upload.php or
wp-content/themes/deep-blue/megaframe/megapanel/inc/upload.php script
(e.g. via .htaccess).

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