Malicious WordPress plugin

This utility simply generates a WordPress plugin that will grant you a reverse shell once uploaded. I recommend installing Kali Linux, as MSFvenom is used to generate the payload.

It goes without mentioning that in order for this method to be effective, you must have credentials to a valid User account, with rights to add plugins to the WordPress website ;)

Usage Example

root@wetw0rk:~# python
__        __            _
\ \      / /__  _ __ __| |_ ____      ___ __
 \ \ /\ / / _ \|  __/ _  |  _ \ \ /\ / /  _ \
  \ V  V / (_) | | | (_| | |_) \ V  V /| | | |
   \_/\_/ \___/|_|  \__,_| .__/ \_/\_/ |_| |_|

Example: 8888 Y

How and When do I use this?

Usage is super simple, simply pass wordpwn your listening address and listening port and execute the script. You are also given the option to start a handler, I recommend that you do... since by default the plugin will be made using a php/meterpreter/reverse_tcp reverse shell.If you have your own nefarious PHP payload simply adjust the script to accept it.

After the script is ran, a zip file (the plugin) called will be created in the current directory (and a handler will be started if you specified it with the Y option). Upload this zip file as a new plugin (by browsing to the URL http://(target)/wp-admin/plugin-install.php?tab=upload). Once uploaded, you have to activate the plugin.

Be sure to start our listener (if you didn't specify the handler with the Y option) !

Once the plugin installed and activated, just navigate to the following URLs to launch the reverse shell :

  • http://(target)/wp-content/plugins/malicious/wetw0rk_maybe.php
  • http://(target)/wp-content/plugins/malicious/QwertyRocks.php

Note: if the script usage is still a mystery to you, JavaRockstar has made a tutorial on his website HackingVision about it.


I want to be 100% sure that I give credit to Rob Carr. Rob Carr is the author of the Metasploit module wp_admin_shell_upload, which this script is based on. You can find more information on his module at Rapid7 .
