  1. Does the exploit also work outside of admin.php? If not, it would mean that you need to have admin rights in order to “break in” and plant your code … but since you have admin rights already, it’s useless to break it. Please correct me if I’m wrong.


    • Indeed, in this advisory, authentication is required, else it’s useless. This advisory is just to show the poor coding and unvalidated parameters. These vulnerable parameters might have been used at numerous places in code which won’t require authentication.
