[Resolved] [Plugin: GRAND FlAGallery] Security Vulnerability

  • Beshoy Girgis


    I have reason to believe this plugin has a security vulnerability. I have an IP targeting files in this extension with hundreds of the following in my access log: - - [04/Oct/2012:01:00:04 +0000] "POST /wp-content/plugins/flash-album-gallery/lib/hitcounter.php HTTP/1.1" 403 220

    I added a “deny from” in my htaccess which resulted in:

    [Thu Oct 04 01:00:04 2012] [error] [client] client denied by server configuration: PATH/wp-content/plugins/flash-album-gallery/lib/hitcounter.php, referer: http://DOMAIN/wp-content/plugins/flagallery-skins/stylishgrey/gallery.swf

    I’m not sure what the vulnerability the hacker’s script is trying to take advantage of but I thought you should know.

    hitcounter.php is a script for view and rating statistic of each image.
    Every time someone view the picture in the gallery, SWF post ‘view+1’ to hitcounter.php and this script write this information to database.
