Remote Code Exection in WordPress: an analysis, by Tom Van Goethem (PhD University Leuven)
With over 13 million downloads, WordPress is one of the most popular open source blog platforms and content management systems. One of its key features is the installation of plugins. These are developed by third parties, but WordPress has to maintain its legacy codebase in order to remain compatible with these plugins. As this codebase makes use of unsafe functions, vulnerabilities may arise, affecting thousands websites - if not more. This presentation will focus on a vulnerability that has been present in WordPress versions up to September 2013. This vulnerability, which may lead to Remote Code Execution, was found by a simple combination of two publicly known elements: PHP Object Injection and unexpected behaviour of MySQL regarding Unicode characters.
Tom Van Goethem is passionate about web security. After getting a master's degree of Applied Informatics, he enrolled in a PhD at the University of Leuven. As a student with a chronic drinking problem, he still found some time to hunt bugs for fun (and profit).
