# Exploit Title: WordPress Plugin Wp-FileManager 6.8 - RCE
# Date: September 4,2020
# Exploit Author: Mansoor R (@time4ster)
# Version Affected: 6.0 to 6.8
# Vendor URL: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-file-manager/
# Patch: Upgrade to wp-file-manager 6.9
# Tested on: wp-file-manager 6.0 (https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-file-manager.6.0.zip)

#Description:
#The core of the issue began with the File Manager plugin renaming the extension on the elFinder library’s connector.minimal.php.dist file to .php so it could be executed directly, even though the connector file was not used by the File Manager itself. Such libraries often include example files that are not intended to be used “as-is” without adding access controls, and this file had no direct access restrictions, meaning the file could be accessed by anyone. This file could be used to initiate an elFinder command and was hooked to the elFinderConnector.class.php file

#Using connector.minimal.php file attacker can upload arbitrary file to the target (unauthenticated) & thus can achieve Remote code Execution.

-v|--verbose				Also prints curl command which is going to be executed
-h|--help				Print Help menu

./wp-file-manager-exploit.sh --wp_url https://www.example.com/wordpress --check
./wp-file-manager-exploit.sh --wp_url https://wordpress.example.com/ -f /tmp/php_hello.php --verbose
