Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: WordPress: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200507-02)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: July 04, 2005
Bug(s): #97374
ID: 200507-02

Synopsis

WordPress contains PHP script injection, cross-site scripting and path disclosure vulnerabilities.

Background

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

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/wordpress
Vulnerable: < 1.5.1.3
Unaffected: >= 1.5.1.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

James Bercegay of the GulfTech Security Research Team discovered that WordPress insufficiently checks data passed to the XML-RPC server. He also discovered that WordPress has several cross-site scripting and full path disclosure vulnerabilities.

Impact

An attacker could use the PHP script injection vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary PHP script commands. Furthermore the cross-site scripting vulnerabilities could be exploited to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.

Workaround

There are no known workarounds at this time.

Resolution

All WordPress users should upgrade to the latest available version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/wordpress-1.5.1.3"
