NanoCMS 0.4 Remote Code Execution
# Exploit Title: NanoCMS v0.4 - Remote Code Execution (RCE) (Authenticated)
# Date: 2022-07-26
# Exploit Auuthor: p1ckzi
# Vendor Homepage: https://github.com/kalyan02/NanoCMS
# Version: NanoCMS v0.4
# Tested on: Linux Mint 20.3
# CVE: N/A
#
# Description:
# this script uploads a php reverse shell to the target.
# NanoCMS does not sanitise the data of an authenticated user while creating
# webpages. pages are saved with .php extensions by default, allowing an
# authenticated attacker access to the underlying system:
