This issue is possible due to an unsafe call to unserialize() in the wpadm_unpack() method. The input is taken directly from the POST request as can be seen in the following code fragment:

wpadm.php:

if ( ! function_exists( 'wpadm_run' )) {
function wpadm_run($pl, $dir) {
@set_time_limit(0);
require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/class-wpadm-method-class.php';
$request_name = 'wpadm_'.$pl.'_request';
if( isset( $_POST[$request_name] ) && ! empty ( $_POST[$request_name] ) ) {
require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/class-wpadm-core.php';
$wpadm = new WPAdm_Core(wpadm_unpack($_POST[$request_name]), $pl, $dir);
echo '<wpadm>'.wpadm_pack($wpadm->getResult()->toArray()).'</wpadm>';
exit;
}
}
}


if ( ! function_exists( 'wpadm_unpack' )) {
/**
* @param str $str
* @return mixed
*/
function wpadm_unpack( $str ) {
return unserialize( base64_decode( $str ) );
}
}

It has been confirmed that this issues can be used to execute arbitrary PHP code.
