Severity High
Score 7.2/10


SchoolCMS version 2.3.1 allows file upload via the logo upload feature at admin.php?m=admin&c=site&a=save by using the .jpg extension, changing the Content-Type to image/php, and placing PHP code after the JPEG data. This ultimately allows execution of arbitrary PHP code.
