Details

https://sumofpwn.nl/advisory/2016/cross_site_request_forgery_in_icegram_wordpress_plugin.html

The vulnerability exists in the file icegram.php. As can be seen in the code fragment below, the plugin reads the value of the option_name URL parameter and uses this value as a key to update_option(). This allows an attacker to create an link that will overwrite an arbitrary WordPress option. The value of target option will be set to true.

update_option($_GET['option_name'], true);

In order to exploit this issue, the attacker has to lure/force a logged on WordPress Administrator into opening a malicious link. If a logged in Administrator opens the following URL, the ability for users to register will be enabled:

http://<target>/wp-admin/edit.php?dismiss_admin_notice=1&option_name=users_can_register
