Pluck, also known as pluck-cms, is an open source content management system, written in the PHP scripting language. It allows for webpage creation for users with little or no programming experience, and, unlike most content management systems, does not use a database to store its data. Pluck also includes a module system, which allows developers to integrate custom functionality into the system.[1]

Functionality[edit]

Pluck has the following functionality:[2]

  • Page creation
  • Theming system
  • Module support
  • Trashcan

It includes 3 default modules:

  • Albums
  • Blog
  • Contact form

More functionality can be added through the module system.[1]

History[edit]

Vulnerabilities[edit]

According to Secunia, pluck currently (as of July 2013) has 1 unpatched security advisory (out of 7 total).[4] The vulnerability allows arbitrary PHP code to be executed and is rated highly critical.[5] Although the development code has been patched since November 2012, the latest stable release (4.7) available for download is still vulnerable.[6]
