WordPress Contus Video Gallery 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 may leverage this issue to upload arbitrary files to the affected computer; this can result in arbitrary code execution within the context of the vulnerable application.

WordPress Contus Video Gallery 1.3 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
