We have tested this on client servers and we don't get access to all that root, just the one in the user's account.

Maybe you should open a one-time support ticket to the CWP team to check your server. Maybe this is a misconfiguration of the server itself.

Hello,

First of all, I recommend the owner not to use such file manager plugins. Because with this type of add-ons; If a plugin, theme or special software is a security problem, they install malicious software on the server using this type of wp-file-manager plug-ins.

But I have an opinion like this;

Does this WP-FILE-MANAGER plugin work with shell logic? With Cloudlinux, if the necessary precautions are not taken on servers that do not install CageFS, you can access the root directory with shell files, although access is limited due to read and write permissions, it is a sufficient reason to cause damage.

The fact that I have ROOT access via PHP at the moment has not brought a different thought to my mind.

Looks to me like it's an amateur hoster misconfiguration, leaving backdoors wide open.  :-\
Most should know that Wordpress is a hacker's fest.

php.ini
Code: [Select]
disable_functions = show_source, system, shell_exec, passthru, exec, popen, proc_openPlus jailkit.
Then tell lusers to stop installing risky plugins to WP.
Sorted.

You could also try
Code: [Select]
open_basedir = ~/But the implementation of this varies.

this is not any serious type of security risk , it seems you can't edit other user files you need to configure openbasedir to prevent it to list view files/folders.

by using cwp secure kernel you would have much higher security limiting the access to user needed files only.
