    Maliciously​ ​ uploaded​ ​ files (.html, .php.jpg, etc)​ ​ represent​ ​ a ​ ​ significant​ ​ risk​ ​ to​ ​ applications.​ ​ Any​ ​ attacker​ ​ always​ ​ tries
    to​ ​ find​ ​ a ​ ​ way​ ​ to​ ​ get​ ​ a ​ ​ code​ ​ onto​ ​ a ​ ​ victim​ ​ system,​ ​ and​ ​ then
    looks​ ​ for​ ​ a ​ ​ way​ ​ to​ ​ execute​ ​ that​ ​ code.​ ​ Using​ ​ an​ ​ uploaded​ ​ file​ ​ accomplishes​ ​ this​ ​ first​ ​ step.​ ​ Here,
    application​ ​ allows​ ​ double​ ​ extension​ ​ file​ ​ upload​ ​ and​ ​ any
    extension​ ​ file​ ​ to​ ​ upload.​ ​ There​ ​ is​ ​ no​ ​ validation​ ​ for​ ​ file​ ​ upload and ​ upload​ ​ of​ ​ double​ ​ extension​ ​ file​ ​test.php.jpg

    @ Mohan – All upload forms in WP, plugins or themes should have sanitization and validation security coding the protects against this type of exploit.  If a particular plugin or them upload form does not have that built-in sanitization and validation security coding or there is a bug in that plugin’s or theme’s upload form then the plugin or theme author should be notified immediately to fix that bug.  BPS Pro UAEG protects against uploaded files being accessed, executed or processed in the WP /uploads/ folder.


    Normally if I contact AIT Pro with an issue they help out. This time, however they broke my website instead of helping out. This happened yesterday.

    They were willing to sort it out yesterday and were waiting on me to provide FTP details. I provided this this morning and been chasing this all day but have heard absolutely nothing.

    I am very worried and need my website restored urgently. Does anyone know if AIT Pro have a contact number or any other way I can contact them. This is becoming a nightmare.  I appreciate any feedback you can provide. Thanks
