Wordpress Plugin BackWPup Platform. Independent Affected versions. 1.6.1 (verified), possibly others Severity Rating. High Impact. System Access Attack Vector. Remote without authentication Solution Status. Upgrade to version 1.7.1 CVE reference. Not yet assigned Details. A vulnerability has been discovered in the Wordpress plugin BackWPup 1.6.1 which can be exploited to execute local or remote code on the web server. The Input passed to the component "wp_xml_export.php" via the "wpabs" variable allows the inclusion and execution of local or remote PHP files as long as a "_nonce" value is known. The "_nonce" value relies on a static constant which is not defined in the script meaning that it defaults to the value "822728c8d9".
