Wordpress Plugin Backup Guard RCE
cve-2021 | Level: Easy | Total Lab Runs: 0 | Premium Lab |
In this lab environment, the user will access a Kali GUI instance. A vulnerable machine running Wordpress deployed on http://demo.ine.local.
The vulnerable wordpress Backup Guard plugin is installed on the target machine. Your task is to fingerprint the application using command-line tools available on the Kali terminal and then exploit the application using the Metasploit module.
The WordPress Backup and Migrate Plugin – Backup Guard WordPress plugin before 1.6.0 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.
The target WordPress Backup and Migrate Plugin is vulnerable to CVE-2021-24155
