Wp-table wptable-button.php file include

wptable-button-file-include (33989) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Wp-table could allow a remote attacker to include arbitrary files. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to the wptable-button.php script using the wpPATH parameter to specify a malicious file from a remote or the local system, which could allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information or execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable Web server.

Note: In order to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code using a local file, the attacker would first be required to upload a malicious file or inject arbitrary commands into an existing file.
