Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Wordpress: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200506-04)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: June 06, 2005
Updated: May 22, 2006
Bug(s): #88926, #94512
ID: 200506-04

Synopsis


Wordpress contains SQL injection and XSS vulnerabilities.


Background


WordPress is a PHP and MySQL based content management and publishing
system.


Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/wordpress
Vulnerable: < 1.5.1.2
Unaffected: >= 1.5.1.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Due to a lack of input validation, WordPress is vulnerable to SQL
injection and XSS attacks.


Impact


An attacker could use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to gain
information from the database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting
issues give an attacker the ability to inject and execute malicious
script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials,
potentially compromising the victim's browser.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Wordpress users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/wordpress-1.5.1.2"
