2) Vulnerability Description

The vulnerability affect the `FilePicker` module,
it is possible to bypass the restriction and upload a malicious file with `.phar` extension to gain Remote Code Execution.
This vulnerability is remotely exploitable and require authentication.

3) PoC and details

* Login into the admin area and surf to the `MicroTiny WYSIWYG editor` functionality then click on the insert/edit image button
* A new window will be opened, now click on the search button, the `CMSMS File Picker` will be shown
* Click on the upload button and Select the .phar file
* Surf to uploads/your-file-name.phar and enjoy the shell

The exploit is working because the upload handler checks only if the extension contains the `php` string (obviously `phar` does not match).
The exploit works fine on a standard Ubuntu system, here the configuration used for the tests:

* Linux ubuntu 5.4.0-58-generic
* php version 7.4.3
* Apache/2.4.41 (Ubuntu)
* File Picker version = "1.0.5"
