# Description about Software :
***************************
wp Dreamwork Gallery is open source software for WordPress.

##############################################################################

# Impact :
***********
* The software allows the attacker to upload or transfer files of dangerous types that

can be automatically processed within the product's environment.

* Weaknesses in this category are related to the management of permissions, privileges,

and other security features that are used to perform access control.

* WordPress WP-DreamworkGallery Plugins 2.3-2.1 and other versions is prone to a

vulnerability that lets attackers upload arbitrary files because the application fails

to properly verify user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this vulnerability to upload

arbitrary code and run it in the context of the webserver process.

This may facilitate unauthorized access or privilege escalation; other attacks are also possible.

WordPress Plugin wp Dreamwork Gallery version 2.1 and 2.3 is vulnerable; prior versions may also be affected.

Vulnerable Source Code : [ upload.php ]
*************************************
<?php
/*
This is an upload script for SWFUpload that attempts to properly handle uploaded files
in a secure way.

Notes:

SWFUpload doesn't send a MIME-TYPE. In my opinion this is ok since MIME-TYPE is no better than
file extension and is probably worse because it can vary from OS to OS and browser to browser (for the same file).
The best thing to do is content sniff the file but this can be resource intensive, is difficult, and can still be fooled or inaccurate.
Accepting uploads can never be 100% secure.

You can't guarantee that SWFUpload is really the source of the upload. A malicious user
will probably be uploading from a tool that sends invalid or false metadata about the file.
The script should properly handle this.

The script should not over-write existing files.

The script should strip away invalid characters from the file name or reject the file.

The script should not allow files to be saved that could then be executed on the webserver (such as .php files).
To keep things simple we will use an extension whitelist for allowed file extensions. Which files should be allowed
depends on your server configuration. The extension white-list is _not_ tied your SWFUpload file_types setting

For better security uploaded files should be stored outside the webserver's document root. Downloaded files
should be accessed via a download script that proxies from the file system to the webserver. This prevents
users from executing malicious uploaded files. It also gives the developer control over the outgoing mime-type,
access restrictions, etc. This, however, is outside the scope of this script.

SWFUpload sends each file as a separate POST rather than several files in a single post. This is a better
method in my opinions since it better handles file size limits, e.g., if post_max_size is 100 MB and I post two 60 MB files then
the post would fail (2x60MB = 120MB). In SWFupload each 60 MB is posted as separate post and we stay within the limits. This
also simplifies the upload script since we only have to handle a single file.

The script should properly handle situations where the post was too large or the posted file is larger than
our defined max. These values are not tied to your SWFUpload file_size_limit setting.
