This issue is possible due to two unsafe calls to unserialize() in the sam-ajax-loader.php file. The input is taken directly from the POST request as can be seen in the following code fragment:

sam-ajax-loader.php:

if ( in_array( $action, $allowed_actions ) ) {
switch ( $action ) {
case 'sam_ajax_load_place':
echo json_encode( array( 'success' => false, 'error' => 'Deprecated...' ) );
break;

case 'sam_ajax_load_ads':
if ( ( isset( $_POST['ads'] ) && is_array( $_POST['ads'] ) ) && isset( $_POST['wc'] ) ) {
$clauses = unserialize( base64_decode( $_POST['wc'] ) );

This issue can potentially result in arbitrary code execution, but this has not been confirmed.
