Ever wondered how a WordPress backdoor can be created? This is an educational post that shows you how to do it. What you decide to do with this code is entirely up to you, I of course encourage you to play nice and not use it for malicious purposes.
So what’s happening here?
To fire the backdoor that creates the admin user, we navigate to http://www.yoursitename.com/?backdoor=go.
The code will then create a user ‘mr_admin’ with administrator rights and password ‘pa55w0rd!’.
You can now login as administrator with this user.
