Description: This plugin allows you to easily add a candidate application form to a job vacancy post, which allows the candidate to apply for the vacancy.
Vulnerability:
The code in downloadpdffile.php doesn't do any sanity checks, allowing a remote attacker to download sensitive system files:

<?php
2 $file_name = $_GET["fileName"];
3 $path = $_GET["fileUrl"];
4 $fullfile = $path.$file_name;
5 if (file_exists('../../uploads/candidate_application_form/'.$file_name)) {
6 header('Pragma: public'); // required
7 header('Expires: 0'); // no cache
8 header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
9 header('Last-Modified: '.gmdate ('D, d M Y H:i:s', filemtime ('../../uploads/candidate_application_form/'.$file_ name)).' GMT');
10 header('Cache-Control: private',false);
11 header('Content-Type: '.'application/pdf');
12 header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'.basename('../../uploads/candidate_application_form/'.$file_ name).'"');
13 header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
14 header('Content-Length: '.filesize('../../uploads/candidate_application_form/'.$file_name)); // provide file size
15 header('Connection: close');
16 readfile('../../uploads/candidate_application_form/'.$file_name); // push it out
17 exit();
18 }
