Re: Wordpress gallery-3.8.3 plugin Arbitrary File Read Vulnerability

Beni, looking at the source code, filename_1 is referenced only in
gllr_plugin_install and its value is hardcoded and not taken from the
request.

Are you sure it's filename_1 the parameter affected?

Seems to be false positive. At least I can't make that PoC URL work. This goes to Apache's error.log after trying to 
reproduce with the newest version of this plugin:

mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function register_activation_hook() in 
<snip>/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin/gallery-plugin.php on line 1334

Does the plugin need some kind of configuration before this vulnerability "activates"? Does "arbitrary file read 
vulnerability" mean it is not the same as remote file inclusion?
