EZPZ One Click Backup Plugin for WordPress 'cmd' Parameter Remote Command Execution

High Nessus Plugin ID 74108


The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is affected by an arbitrary command execution vulnerability.


The EZPZ One Click Backup Plugin for WordPress installed on the remote host is affected by a remote command execution vulnerability due to a failure to properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'cmd' parameter in the ezpz-archive-cmd.php script. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary commands on the remote host, subject to the privileges of the web server user.


Unknown at this time. Development of the EZPZ plugin was reportedly discontinued as of 4/27/2012.
