Exploit WordPress using Photo Gallery Unrestricted File Upload

Photo Gallery Plugin for WordPress contains a flaw that allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code. This flaw exists because the photo-gallery\photo-gallery.php script allows access to filemanager\UploadHandler.php. The post () method in UploadHandler.php does not properly verify or sanitize user-uploaded files.
