Vector of operation: Remote
Impact: Denial of service, Unauthorized modification of data
Affected products: WordPress InfiniteWP Client 1.x
Affected versions: WordPress InfiniteWP Client version up to 1.3.8
The vulnerability is due to the fact that InfineWP Client receives commands via php: // input stream, used to perform administrative actions, and in some cases allows you to perform such actions bypassing the authentication mechanism. This can be exploited.
Note: Successful exploitation allows you to translate the site into maintenance mode and change the content of a page with an appropriate warning to the visitors, but requires knowledge login of the current user with administrative rights.
Solution: Install the latest version 1.3.8 from the manufacturer.
