The vulnerability can be easily spotted with our security analysis solution and we are certain that this issue is already known to many researchers.
Although the requirement of a user account prevents the exploitation of arbitrary Word Press sites at scale, those sites that share multiple user accounts should apply a hotfix.
Because of this, we have developed a temporary fix provided in the snipped below.
The fix can be integrated into an existing Word Press installation by adding it to the does not contain any parts making path traversal possible. The provided fix shall ultimately be seen as a temporary fix in order to prevent attacks.
I finally decided to try them out in selling a website to see how it would turn out for me.
That is when I realized they have many flaws I couldn’t overlook.
