*(2) Vulnerability Details:*
WordPress Daily Edition Theme web application has a security bug problem.
It can be exploited by "Unrestricted Upload of File" (Arbitrary File
Uploading) attacks. With a specially crafted request, a remote attacker can
include arbitrary files from the targeted host or from a remote or local
host . This may allow disclosing file contents or executing files like PHP
scripts. Such attacks are limited due to the script only calling files
already on the target host.

*(2.1)* The code flaw occurs at "thumb.php?" page with "src" parameters.
